Probability and Stochastic Analysis - University of Bonn

S5E1 Graduate Seminar on Numerical Analysis:

Optimal Transport -  Modelling, Analysis and Numerical Approximation

Prof. Dr. Martin Rumpf, Dr. Matthias Erbar

Time: Friday 12-14

Room:  SR 1.007



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.

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