National Initiatives


Inria exploratory project EXPLORAGRAM (in cooperation with MOKAPLAN): We explored new algorithms for computational optimal transport. The project allowed us to hire a post-doc for 18 months (Erica Schwindt). She worked on the semi-discrete algorithm, and its application to the simulation of fluid-structure interactions. The project allowed to strengthen the cooperation with MOKAPLAN. It also allowed us to start exploring new cooperations, with Institut d'Astrophysique de Paris, on early universe reconstruction. The results were published in [7].

ANR MAGA (2016-2020)

We participate in the ANR MAGA (ANR-16-CE40-0014) on the Monge Ampere equation and computational geometry. In this ANR project, we cooperate with Quentin Merigot and other researchers of the MOKAPLAN Inria team on new computational methods for optimal transport.

ANR ROOT (2016-2020)

We participate in the Young Researcher ANR ROOT (ANR-16-CE23-0009) on Optimal Transport for computer graphics, with Nicolas Bonneel (CNRS Lyon) as Principal Investigator. In the context of this project, we develop a new symmetric algorithm for semi-discrete optimal transport that optimizes for both the location of the samples and their Lagrange multipliers. An ENS training period will start in Jan. 2018 (Agathe Herrou), hosted in Nancy.
