[CITATION] Asymptotics for L 2functionals of the quantile process with application to tests of fit based on weighted Wasserstein distances

ABSTRACT Weighted L_{2} functionals of the empirical quantile process appear as a component of many test statistics, in particular in tests of fit to locationscale families of distributions based on weighted Wasserstein distances. An essentially complete set of distributional limit theorems for the squared empirical quantile process integrated with respect to general weights is presented. The results rely on limit theorems for quadratic forms in exponential random variables, and the proofs use only simple asymptotic theory for probability distributions in R^{n}. The limit theorems are then applied to determine the asymptotic distribution of the test statistics on which weighted Wasserstein tests are based. In particular, this paper contains an elementary derivation of the limit distribution of the ShapiroWilk test statistic under normality.

Abstract An algebraic decay rate is derived which bounds the time required for velocities to equilibrate in a spatially homogeneous flowthrough model representing the continuum limit of a gas of particles interacting through slightly inelastic collisions. This rate is obtained by reformulating the dynamical problem as the gradient flow of a convex energy on an infinitedimensional manifold. An abstract theory is developed for gradient flows in length spaces, which shows how degenerate convexity (or even nonconvexity) — if uniformly controlled — will quantify contractivity (limit expansivity) of the flow.

Ordinary Least Squares for histogram data based on Wasserstein distance.
In: LECHEVALLIER YVES, SAPORTA GILBERT. Proceedings of COMPSTAT'2010. (pp. 581589). ISBN: 9783790826036. HEIDELBERG: Physica Verlag (GERMANY).
Histogram data is a kind of symbolic representation which allows to describe an individual by an empirical frequency distribution. In this paper we introduce a linear regression model for histogram variables. We present a new Ordinary Least Squares approach for a linear model estimation, using the Wasserstein metric between histograms. In this paper we suppose that the regression coefficient are scalar values. After having illustrated the concurrent approaches, we corroborate the proposed estimation method by an application on a real dataset.
Clustering Linear Models Using Wasserstein Distance,
Series: Studies in Classification, Data Analysis, and Knowledge Organization , Palumbo, Francesco; Lauro, Carlo Natale; Greenacre, Michael J. (Eds.), 2010, ISBN: 9783642037382, pages 4148.
This paper deals with the clustering of complex data. The input elements to be clustered are linear models estimated on samples arising from several subpopulations (typologies of individuals). We review the main approaches to the computation of metrics between linear models. We propose to use a Wasserstein based metric for the first time in this field. We show the properties of the proposed metric and an application to real data using a dynamic clustering algorithm.

““Exact” Deviations in Wasserstein Distance for Empirical and Occupation Measures”,
E. Boissard, and T. le Gouic,
Preprint, arXiv:1103.3188v1, 2011.
We study the problem of socalled "exact" or nonasymptotic deviations between a reference measure $μ$ and its empirical version $L_n$, in the $p$Wasserstein metric, $1 ≤ p ≤ 2$, under the standing assumption that $μ$ satisfies a transportentropy inequality. This work is a generalization of an article by F.Bolley, A.Guillin and C.Villani, where the case of measures with support in $\R^d$ was studied. Our methods are based on concentration inequalities and extend to the general setting of measures on a Polish space. Deviation bounds for the occupation measure of a contracting Markov chain in $W_1$ distance are also given. Throughout the text, several examples are worked out, including the cases of Gaussian measures on separable Banach spaces, and laws of diffusion processes.

Abstract:This paper connects the timedomain uncertainty propagation approach for model validation in Wasserstein distance 2W2, introduced by the authors in [1], with the frequency domain model validation in the same. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first frequency domain interpretation of MongeKantorovich optimal transport. It is shown that the asymptotic 2W2 can be written as functions of the H2 norms of the system gains, which have intuitive meaning. A geometric interpretation for this newly derived frequencydomain formula is given. The geometric interpretation helps us in comparing Wasserstein distance with classical frequencydomain validation metrics like nugap.

The paper gives the bounds on the solutions to a Stein equation for the negative binomial distribution that are needed for approximation in terms of the Wasserstein metric. The proofs are probabilistic, and follow the approach introduced in Barbour & Xia (2006). The bounds are used to quantify the accuracy of negative binomial approximation to parasite counts in hosts. Since the infectivity of a population can be expected to be proportional to its total parasite burden, the Wasserstein metric is the appropriate choice.
Wasserstein barycenters (Agueh and Carlier, 2011) define a new family of barycenters between N probability measures that builds upon optimal transport theory. We argue using a simple example that Wasserstein barycenters have interesting properties that differentiate them from other barycenters proposed recently, which all build either or both on kernel smoothing and Bregman divergences. We propose two algorithms to compute Wasserstein barycenters for finitely supported measures, one of which can be shown to be a generalization of Lloyd's algorithm. A naive implementation of these algorithms is intractable, because it would involve numerous resolutions of optimal transport problems, which are notoriously expensive to compute. We propose to follow recent work by Cuturi (2013) and smooth these transportation problems to recover faster optimization procedures. We apply these algorithms to the visualization of perturbed images and resampling in particle filters.

Convergence to equilibrium in Wasserstein distance for FokkerPlanck equations
François Bolley (CEREMADE), Ivan Gentil (ICJ), Arnaud Guillin (IUF)
(Submitted on 17 Oct 2011 (v1), last revised 18 Sep 2012 (this version, v2)) arXiv:1110.3606
We describe conditions on nongradient drift diffusion FokkerPlanck equations for its solu
tions to converge to equilibrium with a uniform exponential rate in Wasserstein distance. This
asymptotic behaviour is related to a functional inequality, which links the distance with its dis
sipation and ensures a spectral gap in Wasserstein distance. We give practical criteria for this
inequality and compare it to classical ones. The key point isto quantify the contribution of the
diffusion term to the rate of convergence, in any dimension, which to our knowledge is a novelty.

SS5: Averaging Measures: Wasserstein Barycenters, MMOSPA, and more
Description: Summarizing the information encoded in (one or more) probability measures is a fundamental problem in many areas such as signal processing, machine learning, computer vision, and data fusion. In this context, the concept of an “average” measure has recently gained significant interest: Wasserstein Barycenters are used, for example, for texture mixing and fusing (empirical) probability densities. In multitarget tracking with missing target identities, the mean square error (MSE) cannot be used to calculate expected target states. Hence, instead of the MSE the Mean Optimum Subpattern Assignment (MOSPA) distance is employed, which is closely related to the Wasserstein distance. This leads to Minimum MOPSPA estimates instead of MMSE estimates. This Special Session addresses all recent research results that involve the calculation of an “average” of (one or more) probability measures in all its variants. This includes both new theoretical results and applications.

velocities encountering random binary collisions at which they randomly exchange energy.
We show the uniform (in N) exponential contractivity of the dynamics in a nonstandard ...

This paper establishes a link between some space discretization strategies of the Finite
Volume type for the FokkerPlanck equation in general meshes (Voronoï tesselations) and
gradient flows on the underlying networks of cells, in the framework of discrete ...

Abstract Shape space is an active research field in computer vision study. The shape
distance defined in a shape space may provide a simple and refined index to represent a
unique shape. Wasserstein distance defines a Riemannian metric for the Wasserstein ...

Abstract: Let $ X_1,\ ldots, X_n $ be iid random vectors in $\ mathbb {R}^ d $ with $\ X_1\\
le\ beta $. Then, we show that $\ frac {1}{\ sqrt {n}}(X_1+\ ldots+ X_n) $ converges to a
Gaussian in Wasserstein2 distance at a rate of $ O\ left (\ frac {\ sqrt {d}\ beta\ log n}{\ sqrt { ...

Abstract: Gradient bounds had proved to be a very efficient tool for the control of the rate of
convergence to equilibrium for parabolic evolution equations. Among the gradient bounds
methods, the celebrated Bakry\'Emery criterion is a powerful way prove to convergence to ...

Abstract: We study the problem of sampling from a distribution $\ target $ using the Langevin
Monte Carlo algorithm and provide rate of convergences for this algorithm in terms of
Wasserstein distance of order $2 $. Our result holds as long as the continuous diffusion ...

In many fields such as social sciences or biology, relations between data or variables are
presented as networks. To compare these networks, a meaningful notion of distance
between networks is highly desired. The aim of this Master thesis is to study, implement, ...

Abstract: Since the early nineties, it has been observed that the Schroedinger bridge
problem can be formulated as a stochastic control problem with atypical boundary
constraints. This in turn has a fluid dynamic counterpart where the flow of probability ...

Abstract: In the first part of the paper we use a new Fourier technique to obtain a Stein
characterizations for random variables in the second Wiener chaos. We provide the
connection between this result and similar conclusions that can be derived using Malliavin ...

This paper presents a new technique for computing the barycenter of a set of distance or
kernel matrices. These matrices, which define the interrelationships between points sampled
from individual domains, are not required to have the same size or to be in rowbyrow ...

Abstract Boltzmann machines are able to learn highly complex, multimodal, structured and
multiscale realworld data distributions. Parameters of the model are usually learned by
minimizing the KullbackLeibler (KL) divergence from training samples to the learned model.

Abstract The Poisson− Nernst− Planck system of equations used to model ionic transport is
interpreted as a gradient flow for the Wasserstein distance and a free energy in the space of
probability measures with finite second moment. A variational scheme is then set up and is

We investigate a definition of quantum Wasserstein distance of two states based on their
couplings on the product algebra as in the classical case. A detailed analysis of the two
qubit model leads to a formal definition fulfilling some minimal requirements. It also shows
