Title: Duality for the $L^\infty$ Optimal Transport Problem

Abstract: I will discuss a duality theory for the the Monge-Kantorovich optimal mass transport problem in $L^\infty$, where one seeks to minimize cost functionals defined in terms of an essential supremum over probability measures with prescribed marginals. Several formulations of the dual problem are obtained using quasiconvex analysis and PDE techniques. This is based on joint work with E.N. Barron and R.R. Jensen (Loyola University Chicago).
