Optimal transportation of processes with infinite Kantorovich distance. Independence and symmetry.
We consider probability measures on R∞ and study optimal transportation mappings for the case of infinite Kantorovich distance. Our examples include 1) quasi-product measures, 2) measures with certain symmetric properties, in particular, exchangeable and stationary measures. We show in the latter case that existence problem for optimal transportation is closely related to ergodicity of the target measure. In particular, we prove existence of the symmetric optimal transportation for a certain class of stationary Gibbs measures.
