English abstract:
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.
