Correlation and Brascamp-Lieb inequalities for Markov semigroups
This paper builds upon several recent works, where semigroup proofs of Brascamp-Lieb inequalities are provided in various settings (Euclidean space, spheres and symmetric groups). Our aim is twofold. Firstly, we provide a general, unifying, framework based on Markov generators, in order to cover a variety of examples of interest going beyond previous investigations. Secondly, we put forward the combinatorial reasons for which unexpected exponents occur in these inequalities.
