|Title:||Optimal transport theory, with some applications|
|Seminar:||CCMA Luncheon Seminar|
|Speaker:||Alessio Figalli, University of Texas at Austin|
|The optimal transportation problem consists in finding the cheapest way to transport a
distribution of mass from one place to another. Surprisingly, optimal transportation has become a very powerful tool to obtain sharp geometric inequalities, such as for instance the isoperimetric or the Brunn-Minknowski inequality.
In this short talk I’ll introduce the optimal transport problem and show how it can be used to prove this kind of inequalities.|
