Seminar | June 27 | 11 a.m.-12 p.m. | 1011 Evans Hall

 Jan Maas, IST Austria

 Department of Statistics

At the end of the 1990s it was discovered by
Jordan/Kinderlehrer/Otto that the diffusion equation is a gradient flow

the 2-Wasserstein metric from optimal transport. This result has been
the starting point for striking developments at the...   More >
