»Moment constrained optimal transport problem: application to quantum chemistry (joint work with A. Alfonsi, R. Coyaud and D. Lombardi)«

The aim of this talk is to present some recent results on a relaxation of multi-marginal Kantorovich optimal transport problems with a view to the design of numerical schemes to approximate the exact optimal transport problem. More precisely, the approximate problem considered in this talk consists in relaxing the marginal constraints into a finite number of moment constraints, while the state space remains unchanged (typically a subset of R^d for some positive integer d). Using Tchakhaloff’s theorem, it is possible to prove the existence of minimizers of this relaxed problem and characterize them as discrete measures charging a number of points which scales at most linearly with the number of marginals in the problem. In the particular case of a symmetric multi-marginal problem, like the Coulomb cost optimal transport problem which is the semi-classical limit of the Lévy-Lieb functional [1], the number of points charged by minimizers is independent of the number of electrons, thus avoiding the curse of dimensionality. This result is strongly linked to the work [2] and opens the way to the design of new numerical schemes exploiting the structure of these minimizers. Some preliminary numerical results exploiting this structure will be presented. [1] COTAR, Codina, FRIESECKE, Gero, et KLÜPPELBERG, Claudia.
