Item description for Variational Problems in Transport Theory with Mass Concentration (Publications of the Scuola Normale Superiore / Theses (Scuola Normale Superiore)) (v. 4) by Filippo Santambrogio...
The book mainly deals with variational problems involving optimal transportation of probability measures, in competition with concentration effects. First, some problems are presented where measures have to be selected minimizing transport costs between them but satisfying some concentration criteria, with possible applications mainly to urban planning (where the concentrated measures stand for services in the city and the diffuse ones for population). The second part of the book is devoted to optimization problems where the concentration or diffusion phenomena occurs directly at the level of the transportation structure: for instance in most communication networks, as well as in river basins and blood vessels joint transportation is favoured, while some models for traffic congestion or compressible fluid mechanics give raise to problems where spread configurations are preferred.
