Eight written versions of four-hour minicourses focus on using techniques from optimal transport to define geometric notions on metric measure spaces; the notion of weak gradient and Sobolev spaces of functions in metric measure spaces; and functional and geometric inequalities ranging from the concentration of measure, isoperimetry, and minimizers to heat kernel estimates on non-compact manifolds, and Sobolev inequalities in the Sierpinsky carpet.
