Unbalanced Optimal Transport: Convex Relaxation and Dynamic Perspectives.


I will try to present an overview of some results of unbalanced optimal transport for positive measures with different total masses, showing the crucial role of the so-called cone representation and of the corresponding homogeneous marginals. The cone perspective naturally arises in the convex-relaxation approach to optimal transport; in the more specific case of the Hellinger-Kantorovich (aka Fisher-Rao) metric, it provides a natural tool for representing solutions of the dual dynamical formulation via Hamilton-Jacobi equations, and it is very useful for studying the geodesic convexity of entropy type functionals.
