Webinar〝Semi-discrete Optimal Transport for Cosmological Reconstruction〞

Optimal Transport Theory is a field of Mathematics that describes the cost-effective transfer of probability distributions, and provides connections between probability theory, geometry, partial differential equations, and of course optimisation. Over more than two centuries active research this field has fueled great advances, and more recently has led to understanding relations with other research fields, such as Computer Science and Physics. In this seminar, the speaker will give an introduction to the main concepts in Optimal Transport, beginning with its original formulation and ending with modern examples of computational tools that allow for the construction efficient algorithms. He will then focus on a particular application in cosmology, the reconstruction of the linear density field from observations of the non-linearly evolved universe. In particular, he presents results that show the efficient and accurate reconstruction of Baryonic Acoustic Oscillations from the late-time distribution of matter.

“Copernicus Webinar and Colloquium Series”: To promote scientific discussions during this pandemic, they are organizing an online seminar series, i.e. Copernicus Webinar Series, seeking the most outstanding speakers to introduce innovative ideas and important progress in the field of gravity and cosmology. This series is named after the famous Polish Astronomer, Nicolaus Copernicus, whose discovery eventually marked the dawn of modern science.
