Abstract:

In this paper we study the family of embeddings $\Phi_t$ of a compact $\RCD^*(K,N)$ space $(X,d,m)$ into $L^2(X,m)$ via eigenmaps. Extending part of the classical results by Berard, ,Berard-Besson-Gallot, known for closed Riemannian manifolds, we prove convergence as $t\downarrow 0$ of the rescaled pull-back metrics $\Phi_t^*g_{L^2}$ in $L^2(X,m)$ induced by $\Phi_t$. Moreover we discuss the behavior of $\Phi_t^*g_{L^2}$ with respect to measured Gromov-Hausdorff convergence and $t$. Applications include the quantitative $L^p$-convergence in the noncollapsed setting for all $p<\infty$, a result new even for closed Riemannian manifolds and Alexandrov spaces.
