We continue our investigation of the intertwining relations for Markov semigroups and extend our previous results to multi-dimensional diffusions. In particular these formulae entail new functional inequalities of Brascamp–Lieb type for log-concave distributions and beyond. Our results are illustrated by some classical and less classical examples.

Keywords: Intertwining, diffusion operator on vector fields, spectral gap, Brascamp–Lieb type inequalities, log-concave probability measure
