I'll show how on metric measure spaces with Ricci curvature bounded from below in the sense of Lott-Sturm-Villani there is a well defined notion of Heat flow, and how the study of the properties of this flow leads to interesting geometric and analytic properties of the spaces themselves. A particular attention will be given to the class of spaces where the Heat flow is linear. (From a collaboration with Ambrosio and Savare')
