Arbeitsgemeinschaft: Optimal Transport and Geometry
MetadataShow full item record
Period29 Mar - 04 Apr 2009
This Arbeitsgemeinschaft was devoted to recent developments in optimal transport with emphasis on links and applications to geometry. The topics reached from the origin of optimal transport as a variational problem, where one minimizes a transportation cost when transporting one density into another, over the introduction of a metric on the space of probability measures, leading to the Wasserstein-space and convex funtionals on it, to the connection between Ricci-curvature and the optimal mass transport problem.
