Yanir Rubinstein University of Maryland 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.Recording: http://mm.math.cmu.edu/recordings/cna/YanirRubinstein_small.mp4Date: Thursday, April 27, 2017Time: 1:30 pmLocation: Wean Hall 7218Submitted by: David Kinderlehrer |
