Participant Testimonials

Apr 18 - Apr 23, 2010

The workshop was useful to help keep me abreast of new developments in the field. I work in a neighboring field and don't usually keep up with Optimal Mass Transport Theory. Also, it was nice to pick up on an old joint project with Robert McCann, who is in the field of Optimal Mass Transport.

The workshop was very exciting for me. I obtained new information on this field. Some of participants asked me inspiring questions on my talk. Some new joint work may come from the discussion.

My participation in the BIRS workshop "Optimal transportation and applications" impacted my current research and gave fresh insights into this subject. I also had new contacts... Thank you again for this opportunity and your hospitality.

During the workshop, I got one new paper 90% completed. The area of optimal transport and applications is new for me, the workshop broadens my research interests. They are applications of convex analysis in PDE. The talks are good.
