"Displacement convexity for the entropy in semidiscrete nonlinear Fokker-Planck equations";

in: "ASC Report 26/2016", issued by: Institute for Analysis and Scientific Computing; Vienna University of Technology, Wien, 2016, ISBN: 978-3-902627-09-4, 1 - 18.

The displacement λ-convexity of a nonstandard entropy with respect to a nonlocal transportation metric in ﬁnite state spaces is shown using a gradient ﬂow ap-proach. The constant λ is computed explicitly in terms of a priori estimates of the solution to a ﬁnite-diﬀerence approximation of a nonlinear Fokker-Planck equation. The key idea is to employ a new mean function, which deﬁnes the Onsager operator in the gradient ﬂow formulation.
