School : A NUMERICAL INTRODUCTION TO OPTIMAL TRANSPORT
Sponsors : ERC NORIA, CEA/EDF/INRIA, ROMSOC ITN
Organization : Jean-David Benamou (INRIA, Paris) Gabriel Peyré (ENS, ULM)
Location : INRIA Paris 75012.
Dates: 13-17 May 2019.
Targeted Audience : Engineers, PhD Students, Researchers.
Optimal Mass Transportation is a mathematical research topic which started two centuries ago with Monge’s work on the “Théorie des déblais et des remblais” This engineering problem consists in minimizing the transport cost between two given mass densities.
The monday afternoon will be devoted to the presentation of different formulations and mathematical results which form the starting point of the modern Optimal Transport theory. The rest of the week will be split between the four class of numerical methods which are now the state of the art in the community. The morning lecture will give the theoretical background : the OT formulation, geometrical and regularity restrictions of the method. They will be applied to selected applications during numerical tutorials.
No prior knowledge of OT needed – Basic notions of Optimization/Calculus of Variations/EDPs needed. Progamming skills for the tutorials : Basic knowledge of Python … Online Notebooks will be available before the School.
