On Villani's conjecture concerning entropy production for the Kac Master equation

Einav, Amit (2011-06-01)


In this paper we take an idea presented in recent paper by Carlen, Carvalho, Le Roux, Loss, and Villani ([3]) and push it one step forward to find an exact estimation on the entropy production. The new estimation essentially proves that Villani's conjecture is correct, or more precisely that a much worse bound to the entropy production is impossible in the general case.
