Talk: Martingale Optimal Transport (and Friends), University of Oxford, UK (invited); 2017-09-18 - 2017-09-19.

English abstract:
In classical optimal transport, the contributions by Benamou, Brenier and McCann (among others) regarding the time-dependent version of the problem, have had a lasting impact in the field and led to many applications. It is remarkable that this is achieved even if in continuoustime classical optimal transport mass/particles only travel in straight lines. Of course this fails to happen when we consider (continuous-time) martingale optimal transport. In this talk we discuss the existence of a martingale analogue to McCann's interpolation and the BenamouBrenier formula from a probabilistic-as opposed to analytic - point of view. This remarkable martingale is characterized by very natural optimality and geometric properties, leading us to say that it provides a canonical martingale way to connect two measures in convex order. This is joint work with M. Huesmann and S. Kallblad.
