In this paper we study the family of embeddings Φt of a compact RCD(K,N) space (X,d,m) into L2(X,m) via eigenmaps. Extending part of the classical results [10,11] known for closed Riemannian manifolds, we prove convergence as t↓0 of the rescaled pull-back metrics ΦtgL2 in L2(X,m) induced by Φt. Moreover we discuss the behavior of ΦtgL2 with respect to measured Gromov-Hausdorff convergence and t. Applications include the quantitative Lp-convergence in the noncollapsed setting for all p<∞, a result new even for closed Riemannian manifolds and Alexandrov spaces.
