Optimal mass transport is the rigorous study of moving piles of dirt (probability measures) with minimal effort. In this talk, I will go over the basic formulations of optimal mass transport, and highlight some of the very interesting parts of the theory. In the second half, I will show how optimal mass transport is used in other fields, including training neural networks and controlling swarms of robots.
