Geometric study of Wasserstein spaces and free probability

Project description

Geometry of Wasserstein spaces under study

The transport theory that was formalised by the French mathematician Gaspard Monge in 1781 explores the optimal transport and allocation of resources. The theory has since then found application in a number of fields, including mathematical physics and probability theory. Funded by the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions programme, the GWFP project will study the metric structure of classical Wasserstein spaces (which provide a metric on a space of probability measures), with a strong emphasis on the classification of distance-preserving maps.
