Through subsequent developments, particularly in recent decades, it has become a powerful modern theory. This book contains the proceedings of the summer school 'Optimal Transportation: Theory and Applications' held at the Fourier Institute in Grenoble. The event brought together mathematicians from pure and applied mathematics, astrophysics, economics and computer science. Part I of this book is devoted to introductory lecture notes accessible to graduate students, while Part II contains research papers. Together, they represent a valuable resource on both fundamental and advanced aspects of optimal transportation, its applications, and its interactions with analysis, geometry, PDE and probability, urban planning and economics. Topics covered include Ricci flow, the Euler equations, functional inequalities, curvature-dimension conditions, and traffic congestion.(http://www.cambridge.org/us/academic/subjects/mathematics/geometry-and-topology/optimal-transport-theory-and-applications?format=PB) 0aTransportation problems - Programming9317190 0aMathematical optimization99798 0aCombinatorial analysis956887 0aMatrices931523 7aCombinatorial analysis - fast956887 7aMathematical optimization - fast99798 7aMatrices - fast931523 7aTransportation problems - Programming - fast93171901 aOllivier, YanneEditor93171911 aPajot, HerveeEditor93171921 aVillani, CedriceEditor9317193 2ddccBK c199958d199958 00102ddc406519_600000000000000_O7708NFIC9335006aVSLbVSLcSlot 1680 (2 Floor, East Wing)d2015-04-20eKushal Books g3164.80kSlot 1680 (2 Floor, East Wing)o519.6 O7p189184r2015-04-20v3956.00yBK
