## Blaschke–Santaló inequality for many functions and geodesic barycenters of measures

Advances in Mathematics. 2022. Vol. 396. Article 108110.

Kolesnikov A., Elisabeth Werner

Motivated by the geodesic barycenter problem from optimal transportation theory, we prove a natural generalization of the Blaschke–Santaló inequality and the affine isoperimetric inequalities for many sets and many functions. We derive from it an entropy bound for the total Kantorovich cost appearing in the barycenter problem. We also establish a “pointwise Prékopa–Leindler inequality” and show a monotonicity property of the multimarginal Blaschke–Santaó functional.

We study the Monge and Kantorovich transportation problems on R∞ within the class of exchangeable measures. With the help of the de Finetti decomposition theorem the problem is reduced to an unconstrained optimal transportation problem on the Hilbert space. We find sufficient conditions for convergence of finite-dimensional approximations to the Monge solution. The result holds, in particular, ...

The multistochastic Monge–Kantorovich problem on the product X=∏i=1nXi of n spaces is a generalization of the multimarginal Monge–Kantorovich problem. For a given integer number 1≤k<n we consider the minimization problem ∫cdπ→inf on the space of measures with fixed projections onto every Xi1×…×Xik for arbitrary set of k indices {i1,…,ik}⊂{1,…,n}. In this paper we study basic properties of the multistochastic problem, including well-posedness, existence of a dual solution, boundedness and continuity of a dual ...

The multistochastic (n,k)-Monge--Kantorovich problem on a product space ∏ni=1Xi is an extension of the classical Monge--Kantorovich problem. This problem is considered on the space of measures with fixed projections onto Xi1×…×Xik for all k-tuples {i1,…,ik}⊂{1,…,n} for a given 1≤k<n. In our paper we study well-posedness of the primal and the corresponding dual problem. Our central result describes a solution π to the following important model case: n=3,k=2,Xi=[0,1], ...

We study Sobolev a priori estimates for the optimal transportation $T = \nabla \Phi$ between probability measures $\mu=e^{-V} \, dx$ and $\nu=e^{-W} \, dx$ on ${\bf R}^d$. Assuming uniform convexity of the potential $W$ we show that $\int \| D^2 \Phi\|^2_{HS} \, d\mu$, where $\|\cdot\|_{HS}$ is the Hilbert--Schmidt norm, is controlled by the Fisher information ...

We study Monge-Kantorovich problem with one-dimensional marginals μ,ν and the cost function c=min{l1,…,ln} which equals to minimum of a finite number n of affine functions li satisfying certain non-degeneracy assumptions. We prove that the problem is equivalent to a finite-dimensional extremal problem. More precisely, it is shown that the solution is concentrated on the union of n products Ii×Ji, where {Ii}, {Ji} are partitions of the line into unions ...

According to a classical result of E.~Calabi any hyperbolic affine hypersphere endowed with its natural Hessian metric has a non-positive Ricci tensor. The affine hyperspheres can be described as the level sets of solutions to the ``hyperbolic" toric K\"ahler-Einstein equation $e^{\Phi} = \det D^2 \Phi$ on proper convex cones. We prove a generalization of this ...

The famous Afriat’s theorem from the theory of revealed preferences establishes necessary and sufficient conditions for the existence of utility function for a given set of choices and prices. The result on the existence of a homogeneous utility function can be considered as a particular fact of the Monge–Kantorovich mass transportation theory. In this paper ...

We consider the space P(X) of probability measures on arbitrary Radon space X endowed with a transportation cost J(μ, ν) generated by a nonnegative continuous cost function. For a probability distribution on P(X) we formulate a notion of average with respect to this transportation cost, called here the Fréchet barycenter, prove a version of the law ...

The classical concept of the revealed preferences was introduced by P. Samuelson and studied by H.S. Houthakker, M. Richter, S. Afriat, H. Varian and many others. It was shown by Afriat that the so called SARP (or cyclically consistence) axiom is a necessary and sufficient condition for existence of an appropriate concave utility function for ...

n this work we introduce the concept of Bures-Wasserstein barycenter $Q_*$, that is essentially a Fr\'echet mean of some distribution $P$ supported on a subspace of positive semi-definite Hermitian operators $\mathbb{H}_{+}(d)$.
We allow a barycenter to be constrained to some affine subspace of $\mathbb{H}_{+}(d)$ and provide conditions ensuring its existence and uniqueness.
We also investigate convergence and concentration properties ...

We consider the problem of revenue-maximizing Bayesian auction design with several i.i.d. bidders and several items. We show that the auction-design problem can be reduced to the problem of continuous optimal transportation introduced by Beckmann. We establish the strong duality between the two problems and demonstrate the existence of solutions. We then develop a new ...

We consider probability measures on $\mathbb{R}^{\infty}$ and study natural analogs of 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. It turns out that the existence problem for optimal transportation is closely related to various ergodic ...

We consider the modified Monge-Kantorovich problem with additional restriction: admissible transport plans must vanish on some fixed functional subspace. Different choice of the subspace leads to different additional properties optimal plans need to satisfy. Our main results are quite general and include several important examples. In particular, they include Monge-Kantorovich problems in the classes of ...
