Radial processes for sub-Riemannian Brownian motions and applications ; ; et al in Electronic Journal of Probability (2020), 25(paper no. 97), 1-17 We study the radial part of sub-Riemannian Brownian motion in the context of totally geodesic foliations.

[more ▼] We study the radial part of sub-Riemannian Brownian motion in the context of totally geodesic foliations. Itô's formula is proved for the radial processes associated to Riemannian distances approximating the Riemannian one. We deduce very general stochastic completeness criteria for the sub-Riemannian Brownian motion. In the context of Sasakian foliations and H-type groups, one can push the analysis further, and taking advantage of the recently proved sub-Laplacian comparison theorems one can compare the radial processes for the sub-Riemannian distance to one-dimensional model diffusions. As a geometric application, we prove Cheng's type estimates for the Dirichlet eigenvalues of the sub-Riemannian metric balls, a result which seems to be new even in the Heisenberg group.

[more ▼] We develop a variational theory of geodesics for the canonical variation of the metric of a totally geodesic foliation. As a consequence, we obtain comparison theorems for the horizontal and vertical Laplacians. In the case of Sasakian foliations, we show that sharp horizontal and vertical comparison theorems for the sub-Riemannian distance may be obtained as a limit of horizontal and vertical comparison theorems for the Riemannian distances approximations.

[more ▼] We study the problem of non-explosion of diffusion processes on a manifold with time-dependent Riemannian metric. In particular we obtain that Brownian motion cannot explode in finite time if the metric evolves under backwards Ricci flow. Our result makes it possible to remove the assumption of non-explosion in the pathwise contraction result established by Arnaudon et al. (arXiv:0904.2762, to appear in Sém. Prob.). As an important tool which is of independent interest we derive an Itô formula for the distance from a fixed reference point, generalising a result of Kendall (Ann. Prob. 15:1491–1500, 1987).

As a ... [more ▼] We show that on a manifold whose Riemannian metric evolves under backwards Ricci flow two Brownian motions can be coupled in such a way that their normalized L-distance is a supermartingale. As a corollary, we obtain the monotonicity of the transportation cost between two solutions of the heat equation in the case that the cost function is the composition of a concave non-decreasing function and the normalized L-distance. In particular, it provides a new proof of a recent result of Topping [P. Topping, L-optimal transportation for Ricci flow, J. Reine Angew. Math. 636 (2009) 93–122].
