After a short introduction of the notion of Ricci curvature in the continuous setting, I will present a notion of an interpolating path, on graph, and prove some displacement convexity of the entropy along such an interpolation. If time allows I will give some application to functional inequalities of Poincaré, log-Sobolev and transport-entropy type.
