If you have a question about this talk, please contact José Cañizo. The identification of functionals which vary monotonically as their inputs flow according to a given evolution equation is generally considered to be more of an art than a science. Such monotonicity results have many consequences and, in particular, allow for a deeper understanding of a variety of important inequalities in analysis (via the so-called “semigroup method” or “semigroup interpolation”). The purpose of this talk is to describe a simple framework within which a rich variety of monotone quantities for the heat equation on ℝ This talk is part of the Analysis Seminar series. ## This talk is included in these lists:Note that ex-directory lists are not shown. |
