"Monge-Kantorovich mass transfer problem with L1 cost function"

Date: Tue, March 10, 2015
Time: 11:15
Place: Research I Seminar Room

Abstract: We are going to consider the Monge-Kantorovich problem in the case when the cost density is equal to the distance. In this case, the nonuniform convexity of the cost density defeats the techniques we used before (in the case of uniformly convex cost density c= 1/2(distance)2). We are going to discuss the solution of the dual problem and the existence of optimal mass transfer plan in this more complicated case.
