  • Prekopa inequality

  • Brascamp-Lieb inequality

  • convexity

In a 2013 preprint, H. Raufi obtained, using complex geometry, a matrix-valued extension of Prekopa’s theorem. I will discuss a new approach to this result, and in particular present a Brascamp-Lieb variance inequality for matrix-valued log-concave potentials.
