Curvature calculations for antitrees.

Cushing, David and Liu, Shiping and Muench, Florentin and Peyerimhoff, Norbert (2020) 'Curvature calculations for antitrees.', in Analysis and geometry on graphs and manifolds. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, pp. 21-54. London Mathematical Society Lecture Note Series., 461


In this article we prove that antitrees with suitable growth properties are examples of infinite graphs exhibiting strictly positive curvature in various contexts: in the normalized and non-normalized Bakry-Émery setting as well in the Ollivier-Ricci curvature case. We also show that these graphs do not have global positive lower curvature bounds, which one would expect in view of discrete analogues of the Bonnet-Myers theorem. The proofs in the different settings require different techniques.
