Lecture 6. Hypocoercivity
Hypocoercivity is a concept introduced by C. Villani. It aims to give quantitative estimates for the convergence to equilibrium of hypoelliptic models. In this last lecture, I present an approach to hypocoercivity which parallels the BakryEmery approach to hypercontractivity. It … Continue reading

Lecture 5. The horizontal BonnetMyers
This lecture gives the proof of the horizontal BonnetMyers theorem for Riemannian foliations with totally geodesic leaves. The proof relies on diffusion semigroups methods. Part 1 covers sections 6.1 and half of section 6.2 in the Lecture Notes and part … Continue reading

Lecture 4. The generalized curvature dimension inequality
In this Lecture 4, we use the Weitzenbock formula proved in the previous lecture to prove a generalized curvature dimension inequality, from which we will deduce LiYau type estimates for the horizontal heat kernel. Part 1 covers sections 4.3, 4.4 … Continue reading

Lecture 3. Hopf fibration. Transverse Weitzenbock formulas
In this lecture we continue the study of the Hopf fibration and compute the horizontal heat kernel of this fibration. In the second part of the lecture, we come back to the general framework of Riemannian foliations and introduce a … Continue reading

Lecture 2. Riemannian foliations. Model spaces
In this lecture, we first quickly review what was done in the previous one. We then introduce the horizontal and vertical Laplacians and prove basic commutations results. We explain them the notion of Riemannian foliation. In the second part of … Continue reading

Lecture 1. Introduction and Riemannian submersions
In this first lecture, I give a general introduction about the plan of the lectures and the materials to be covered and start with the study of Riemannian submersions. Thanks to Ugo Boscain, the videos of the lectures are available … Continue reading

SubLaplacians and hypoelliptic operators on totally geodesic Riemannian foliations
I finally finished the lecture notes of my course for the Institut Henri Poincare trimester Geometry, Analysis and Dynamics on subRiemannian manifolds. The course which is entitled Hypoelliptic operators is divided into two parts of each 12 hours. Nicola Garofalo … Continue reading
