Logarithmic Sobolev and Shannon's inequalities and an application to the uncertainty principle

Abstract Full Text(HTML) Figure(1) Related Papers Cited by
  • The uncertainty principle of Heisenberg type can be generalized via the Boltzmann entropy functional. After reviewing the $L^p$ generalization of the logarithmic Sobolev inequality by Del Pino-Dolbeault [6], we introduce a generalized version of Shannon's inequality for the Boltzmann entropy functional which may regarded as a counter part of the logarithmic Sobolev inequality. Obtaining best possible constants of both inequalities, we connect both the inequalities to show a generalization of uncertainty principle of the Heisenberg type.
