Cyclical monotonicity and Kantorovich duality


To go on, we should become acquainted with two basic concepts in the theory of optimal transport. The first one is a geometric property called cyclical monotonicity; the second one is the Kantorovich dual problem, which is another face of the original Monge—Kantorovich problem. The main result in this chapter is Theorem 5.10.
