Titre A stochastic Prekopa-Leindler inequality for log-concave functions
Horaire10:30 à 12:00

The Brunn-Minkowski and Prékopa-Leindler inequalities admit a variety of proofs that are inspired by convexity. Nevertheless, the former holds for compact sets and the latter for integrable functions so it seems that convexity has no special significance. On the other hand, it was recently shown that the Brunn-Minkowski inequality, specialized to convex sets, follows from a local stochastic dominance for naturally associated random polytopes. We show that for the subclass of log-concave functions and associated stochastic approximations, a similar stochastic dominance underlies the Prékopa-Leindler inequality. In collaboration with Peter Pivovarov.
