Decay time and Fisher Information

Department Colloquium on June 20th, 2018

20 June 2018 14:30 – 15:30
Filippo Santambrogio

On June 20 our John-von-Neumann guest professor Marius Junge from the University of Illinois will speak on the topic "Decay time and Fisher Information".


The Department Colloquium takes place on

06/20/18 at 2:30 pm in lecture theater 3 (MI 00.06.011).



The beautiful connection between isoperimetric inequalities and functional inequalities is well established through the work of Bakry, Emry and Ledoux, to name a few.

In this talks we study matrix-valued extensions of Talagrand’s inequality with applications to decay time. Apart from the geometric motivation our results are motivated by quantum information and the amount of entanglement kept in a system which undergoes certain evolutions.
