### Abstract

We develop a general technique, based on the Bakry–Emery approach, to estimate spectral gaps of a class of Markov operator. We apply this technique to various interacting particle systems. In particular, we give a simple and short proof of the diffusive scaling of the spectral gap of the Kawasaki model at high temperature. Similar results are derived for Kawasaki-type dynamics in the lattice without exclusion, and in the continuum. New estimates for Glauber-type dynamics are also obtained. 1 1

Various consequences of (1.2) and (1.3) in terms of ergodicity of the semigroup Tt can be obtained (see e.g. =-=[6]-=-). For instance, under some additional conditions on the domain D(L), the modified logarithmic-Sobolev inequality is equivalent to the statement Entν(Ttf) � e −αt Entν(f) for each f with finite entrop... |

Note that the choice (4.16) makes the reference measure ¯ν N Vn uniform over SN. Thus (4.15) proves that the addition of a small mass (a > 0) is sufficient to give a density–independent lo... |
