講演題目:

Synthetic theory of Ricci curvature
― When Monge, Riemann and Boltzmann meet ―
講演概要:


Optimal transport theory, non-Euclidean geometry and statistical physics met fifteen years ago with the discovery
that Ricci curvature can be studied quantitatively thanks to entropy and Monge-Kantorovich  transport.
This unexpected encounter was very fruitful, leading to progress in each of these fields.
