Seminario di equazioni differenziali e applicazioni: “Optimal steering of probability distributions”

Mercoledì 13 Febbraio 2019, ore 12:00 - Aula 2AB40 + Mercoledì 20 Febbraio 2019, ore 15:00 - Aula 1C150 - Michele Pavon


Mercoledì 13 Febbraio 2019 alle ore 12:00 in Aula 2AB40 e Mercoledì 20 Febbraio 2019 alle ore 12:00 15:00 in Aula 1BC45 1C150, Michele Pavon (Università di Padova) terrà due seminari dal titolo “Optimal steering of probability distributions”.

In these two talks, I shall present an overview on the research program on “Optimal steering of probability distributions” I have been working on in the past four years mostly with Yongxin Chen (Georgia Tech) and Tryphon Georgiou (Univ, Calif. Irvine).
Other collaborators are Allen Tannenbaum (Stony Brook and MSKCC), Giovanni Conforti (Ecole Polytechnique), Esteban Tabak, Monty Essid (NYU, Courant Institute) and Giulio Trigila (CUNY, Baruch College).

The first talk will be devoted to Optimal transport and Schroedinger Bridges from a stochastic control perspective. The second will concentrate on the computational aspects and develop an application to robust-efficient transport over networks. Further applications to cooling of stochastic oscillators and to image interpolation will also be outlined in the two talks. A more detailed description of the two lectures is enclosed.
