In a prior work of the first two authors with Savar´e, a new Riemannian notion of a lower bound for Ricci curvature in the class of metric measure spaces (X, d, m) was introduced, and the corresponding class of spaces was denoted by RCD(K,∞). This notion relates the CD(K, N) theory of Sturm and Lott-Villani, in the case N = ∞, to the Bakry-Emery approach. In this prior work the RCD(K,∞) property is defined in three equivalent ways and several properties of RCD(K,∞) spaces, including the regularization properties of the heat flow, the connections with the theory of Dirichlet forms and the stability under tensor products, are provided. In the above-mentioned work only finite reference measures m have been considered. The goal of this paper is twofold: on one side we extend these results to general σ-finite spaces, and on the other we remove a technical assumption that appeared in the earlier work concerning a strengthening of the CD(K,∞) condition. This more general class of spaces includes Euclidean spaces endowed with Lebesgue measure, complete noncompact Riemannian manifolds with bounded geometry and the pointed metric measure limits of manifolds with lower Ricci curvature bounds ...

A Primer on Carnot Groups: Homogenous Groups, Carnot-Carathéodory Spaces, and Regularity of Their Isometries Le Donne, Enrico (De Gruyter Open, 2017)Carnot groups are distinguished spaces that are rich of structure: they are those Lie groups equipped with a path distance that is invariant by left-translations of the group and admit automorphisms that are dilations with ...
Ma, Shiqi; Salo, Mikko (Walter de Gruyter GmbH, 2021)We consider a fixed angle inverse scattering problem in the presence of a known Riemannian metric. First, assuming a no caustics condition, we study the direct problem by utilizing the progressing wave expansion. Under a ...
Le Donne, Enrico; Rajala, Tapio (Indiana University, 2015)We study the Assouad dimension and the Nagata dimension of metric spaces. As a general result, we prove that the Nagata dimension of a metric space is always bounded from above by the Assouad dimension. Most of the paper ...
Le Donne, Enrico; Züst, Roger (EDP Sciences, 2021)We formalize the notion of limit of an inverse system of metric spaces with 1-Lipschitz projections having unbounded fibers. The construction is applied to the sequence of free Carnot groups of fixed rank n and increasing ...
Euclidean spaces as weak tangents of infinitesimally Hilbertian metric measure spaces with Ricci curvature bounded below Gigli, Nicola; Mondino, Andrea; Rajala, Tapio (Walterde Gruyter GmbH & Co. KG, 2015)We show that in any infinitesimally Hilbertian CD .K; N /-space at almost every point there exists a Euclidean weak tangent, i.e., there exists a sequence of dilations of the space that converges to a Euclidean space ...
