Title: Optimal transport via optimization?

Abstract: In joint work with M. Lindsey we rephrase Monge's optimal transportation (OT) problem with quadratic cost--via a Monge-Ampere equation--as an infinite-dimensional optimization problem, which is often a convex problem. This leads us to define a natural finite-dimensional discretization to the problem and ultimately develop a numerical scheme for which we prove a convergence result.
