Ollivier-Ricci curvature appeared in the context of Riemannian geometry as a coarse notion of the ordinary Ricci curvature. It then migrated to graphs, where its interpretation as a transportation cost (formalized under the first Wasserstein distance) clearly makes it relevant to networking problems. The first occurrence of the Ollivier-Ricci curvature is in the context of wireless networking under a protocol inspired, but different in many respects, from the Back-Pressure and referred to as Heat-Diffusion.
