J-D. Benamou is the coordinator of the ANR ISOTACE (Interacting Systems and Optimal Transportation, Applications to Computational Economics) ANR-12-MONU-0013 (2012-2016). The consortium explores new numerical methods in Optimal Transportation AND Mean Field Game theory with applications in Economics and congested crowd motion. Check

J-D. Benamou and G. Carlier are members of the ANR MFG (ANR-16-CE40-0015-01). Scientific topics of the project: Mean field analysis Analysis of the MFG systems and of the Master equation Numerical analysis Models and applications

J-D. Benamou G. Carlier F-X. Vialard and T. Gallouët are members of ANR MAGA (ANR-13-JS01-0007-01). The Monge-Ampère equation is a fully nonlinear elliptic equation, which plays a central role in geometry and in the theory of optimal transport. However, the singular and non-linear nature of the equation is a serious obstruction to its efficient numerical resolution. The first aim of the MAGA project is to study and to implement discretizations of optimal transport and Monge-Ampère equations which rely on tools from computational geometry (Laguerre diagrams). In a second step, these solvers will be applied to concrete problems from various fields involving optimal transport or Monge-Ampère equations such as computational physics: early universe reconstruction problem, congestion/incompressibility constraints economics: principal agent problems, geometry: variational problems over convex bodies, reflector and refractor design for non-imaging optics

T. Gallouët is member of the ANR GEOPOR Scientific topic: geometrical approach, based on Wasserstein gradient flow, for multiphase flows in porous media. Theory and Numerics.
