Propriétés de concavité du profil isopérimétrique et applications

Abstract : We show that powers of the isoperimetric profile of a closed Riemannian manifold satisfy a family of second order differential inequalities which only depend on its dimension and on a lower bound on the Ricci curvature. Differential concavity properties on the profile, topological restrictions on minimizing regions and comparison theorems arise from these inequalities. For instance, we provide a new proof of Lévy-Gromov inequality. Moreover, most of the previous results can be extended to a more general setting : we endow a Riemannian manifold with its Riemannian distance and with a measure that has a smooth positive density with respect to the Riemannian measure. In this context, we substitute a curvature-dimension assumption for the usual lower bound on the Ricci curvature. Finally, we investigate continuity properties of the isoperimetric profiles associated to a family of closed manifolds that converge towards a closed manifold with respect to Gromov-Hausdorff topology.
