Free discontinuity regularity and stability in optimal transport
Regularity of solutions in the optimal transport problem requires very rigid hypotheses (e.g., convexity of certain sets). When such conditions are not available, one can consider the question of partial regularity, in other words, the in-depth analysis of the structure of singular sets. In this talk, I will discuss the regularity of the set of ``free singularities`` which arise in an optimal transport problem with inner product cost, from a connected set to a disconnected set, along with the stability of such sets under suitable perturbations of the data involved. Some of these results are proven via a non-smooth implicit function theorem for convex functions, which is of independent interest. This talk is based on joint work with Robert McCann.
