Abstract: We introduce the notion of a weighted lift zonoid, and we show that the ordering condition imposed on a measure $ \mu $ and formulated in terms of the weighted lift zonoids of this measure leads to certain functional inequalities for $ \mu $ such as non-linear extensions of Bobkov's shift inequality and weighted inverse log-Sobolev inequality. The choice of the weight $ K$ involved in our version of the inverse log-Sobolev inequality differs substantially from those known in the literature, and it requires that the weight $ v$ involved in the definition of the weighted lift zonoid equals the divergence of the weight $ K$ with respect to the initial measure $ \mu $. We show that such a choice may be useful for proving the direct log-Sobolev inequality as well.
