Graduate Seminar on Numerical Analysis:
Optimal Transport: Modelling, Analysis, Numerical Approximation

Prof. Dr. Martin Rumpf, Dr. Matthias Erbar

The seminar addresses students interested in computational aspects of optimal transport. Deeper knowledge of the underlying theory is no prerequisite. The seminar consists of selected introductory talks on the modeling and the analysis of optimal transport. The focus will be on different numerical methods for a robust and efficient numerical approximation of optimal transport maps and transport paths.

Dates during the term will be based on agreement.

A preliminary meeting is scheduled for 16:15 on Thursday, July 20th in the seminar room 2.025 at the Endenicher Allee 60.
