In this volume, the authors demonstrate under some assumptions on \(f^+\), \(f^\) that a solution to the classical MongeKantorovich problem of optimally rearranging the measure \(\mu{^+}=f^+dx\) onto \(\mu^=f^dy\) can be constructed by studying the \(p\)Laplacian equation \( \mathrm{div}(\vert DU_p\vert^{p2}Du_p)=f^+f^\) in the limit as \(p\rightarrow\infty\). The idea is to show \(u_p\rightarrow u\), where \(u\) satisfies \(\vert Du\vert\leq 1,\mathrm{div}(aDu)=f^+f^\) for some density \(a\geq0\), and then to build a flow by solving a nonautonomous ODE involving \(a, Du, f^+\) and \(f^\).
ReadershipGraduate students and research mathematicians working in optimal control problems involving ODEs.
