The so-called logarithmic Sobolev inequalities appear in various branches of statistical mechanics, quantum field theory, Riemannian geometry, and partial differential equations. In this talk, we discuss recent progress towards establishing sharp quantitative versions of the classical Gaussian log-Sobolev inequality. This is based on joint work with Max Fathi and Michel Ledoux.
