Geometry/Physics Seminar

Title: Optimal Transportation (Pre-talk)
Speaker: Professor Young Heon Kim
Speaker Info: UBC and IAS
Brief Description:
Special Note:

Optimal transportation theory was first initiated by Monge in 19th century and it studies the phenomena arising when mass is allocated in a cheapest way. We will introduce some basic concepts and results in this rapidly growing research area that sees a lot of connections and applications, for example, in geometric inequalities, partial differential equations and Ricci curvature.
