seminar "Evolution equations in probability spaces"


Presently no sessions scheduled.


Recently, important progress has been made in the study of gradient flows in spaces of probability measures. The theory includes a treatment of evolution equations in metric spaces and the continuity/transport equation in Wasserstein spaces. It is the aim of the seminar to study parts of [1].
