Proceedings of the summer school "Optimal transport: Theory and applications"


These lecture notes present the main issues and ideas of some variational problems that use or touch the theory of Optimal Transportation. They all come from economic-oriented applications. Problems are presented through the main ideas, with almost no proofs, at a very informal level of presentation.

Keywords: Traffic congestion, urban planning, Wardrop equilibria, principal-agent problem, general equilibrium, Hotelling problem, local functional on measures
