Computational Optimal Transport
Snapshots of modern mathematics from Oberwolfach
Optimal transport is the mathematical discipline of matching supply to demand while minimizing shipping costs. This matching problem becomes extremely challenging as the quantity of supply and demand points increases; modern applications must cope with thousands or millions of these at a time. Here, we introduce the computational optimal transport problem and summarize recent ideas for achieving new heights in efficiency and scalability.
