Workshop I: Aspects of Optimal Transport in Geometry and Calculus of Variations

Part of the Long Program Optimal Transport
March 31 - April 4, 2008


This workshop will be devoted to the interplay between the theory of optimal transport, geometrical inequalities and nonlinear partial differential equations. Specific topics will include optimization and evolution problems arising in geometry, urban planning, mathematical biology, kinetic theory, and fluid flows. A major emphasis will be pinpointing new research directions and applications.
