Relations between the Schrödinger problem and the optimal transport theory and their applications (mini-course following seminar).

Luigia RIPANI (Université Cergy-Pontoise)

The Schrödinger problem is an entropy minimization problem with marginal constraints and a fixed reference process. In the past few years it enjoys an increasing popularity in different fields, thanks to this relation to optimal transport, smoothness of solutions and other well performing properties in numerical computations.

After introducing the Schrödinger problem and reviewing some classical results of optimal transport, we will present some application to the study of functional inequalities, curvature-dimension condition and applied problems.
