Sub-Riemannian diffusions on foliated manifolds
[ Abstract ]
We study the horizontal diffusion of a totally geodesic Riemannian foliation. We particularly focus on integration by parts formulas on the path space of the diffusion and present several heat semigroup gradient bounds as a consequence. Connections with a generalized sub-Riemannian curvature dimension inequality are made.
