On the ergodic properties of Glauber dynamics

  • D. Stroock
  • B. Zegarlinski


We show that if there is an infinite volume Gibbs measure which satisfies a logarithmic Sobolev inequality with local coefficients of moderate growth, then the corresponding stochastic dynamics decays to equilibrium exponentially fast in the uniform norm.
