DiMaI "Ulisse Dini" Universita' di Firenze

PhD Course held by G. De Philippis (ENS Lyon).

Abstract: In this course I will present the basic existence and regularity theory for real Monge-Ampère equation and some of its applications to Optimal Transport, ConvexGeometry and (if time will permit) Meteorology. In particular I plan to address all the classical theory based on the continuity method as well as all the viscosity solution theory based on the notion of Aleksandrov solutions.

Lessons will take place on mondays and tuesdays starting on april 13th to may 5th (15:30-17:30 room 5 at DiMaI)

Speakers: Guido De Philippis.
