“Pathwise Otto Calculus Lecture 2”   We revisit the [R. Jordan, D. Kinderlehrer, and F. Otto. The variational formulation of the Fokker-Planck equation (1998)] variational characterization of diffusion as entropic gradient flux, and provide for it a probabilistic interpretation based on stochastic calculus. It was shown by Jordan, Kinderlehrer, and Otto that, for diffusions of Langevin-Smoluchowski type, the Fokker-Planck probability density flow minimizes the rate of relative entropy dissipation, as measured by the distance traveled in terms of the quadratic Wasserstein metric.
