If you have a question about this talk, please contact Lisa Maria Kreusser.

I will talk shortly about Optimal Transport in general and how it developed. The Wasserstein distance will arise as a special case of Optimal Transport and some properties are presented. I will shortly explain the numerical approach of Benamou and Brenier for computing the Wasserstein distances. Depending on time I will present a possible application in imaging and/or a application in convergence proofs for large scale particle systems. Most of the proofs are quite technical, so I will focus more on the results itself.
