From Optimal Transport to the Plateau problem via Liquid crystals


Abstract: From Optimal Transport to the Plateau problem via Liquid crystals I will sketch an extremely simple self-contained proof of the celebrated Monge-Kantorovich theorem in Optimal Transport. I will discuss an application to Liquid Crystals, which provides an explicit formula for the least energy required to produce a configuration with assigned topological defects. I will also present ways of computing the least area spanned by a curve in the famous Plateau problem using a similar approach.
