Optimal Mass Transport: Theory, Algorithm, and Applications

Yongxin Chen, Iowa State University

Date and Time: May 02, 2018 (12:30 PM)
Location: Orchard room (3280) at the Wisconsin Institute for Discovery Building


Optimal mass transport (OMT) is a rich area of research with applications to numerous disciplines including econometrics, physics, signal processing, systems and controls, data science and so on. In this talk, I will give a brief introduction to OMT and then focus on its recent developments in algorithms and applications. I will also discuss generalizations of OMT to vector-valued and matrix-valued densities, which have applications in color image processing, matrix-valued power spectral analysis, diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) etc
