Analysis of Coupled Scalar Systems by Displacement Convexity
Potential functionals have been introduced recently as an important tool for the analysis of coupled scalar systems (e.g. density evolution equations). In this contribution we investigate interesting properties of this potential. Using the tool of displacement convexity we show that, under mild assumptions on the system, the potential functional is displacement convex. Furthermore, we give the conditions on the system such that the potential is strictly displacement convex in which case the minimizer is unique.
