The optimal transportation problem defines a notion of distance in the space of probability measures over a manifold, the *Wasserstein space*. In his 1994 Ph.D. thesis, McCann discovered that this...

I will discuss transport of passive scalars by incompressible flows (such as a die in a fluid) and measures of optimal mixing and stirring under physical constraint on the flow. In particular, I will...
