[en] Ricci curvature ; Sturm-Lott-Villani theory ; Convexity of entropy

[en] Given a finitely supported probability measure μ on a connected graph G, we construct a family of probability measures interpolating the Dirac measure at some given point o ∈ G and μ. Inspired by Sturm-Lott-Villani theory of Ricci curvature bounds on measured length spaces, we then study the convexity of the entropy functional along such interpolations. Explicit results are given in three canonical cases, when the graph G is either Z^n , a cube or a tree.
