Visits of International Scientists

Jun Kitagawa (University of Toronto) visited Q. Mérigot and B. Thibert from June 1st to 10th, 2015. They worked on theoretical properties of Newton's algorithm for semi-discrete optimal transport problems arising in geometric optics.

Marco Cuturi (Kyoto Univ.) visited MOKAPLAN as invited professor at Paris-Dauphine during the summer 2015 (2 months), to work on applications of optimal transport to machine learning.


Kévin Degraux, a PhD candidate from the Université Catholique de Louvain (Belgium) has visited Mokaplan from November 2015 to January 2016. His work focusses on sparse signal reconstruction.
