Quentin BERTHET (University of Cambridge) – “Estimation of smooth densities in Wasserstein distance

Abstract:

We describe the optimal rates of density estimation in Wasserstein distance, for different notions of smoothness. This is motivated by the growing use of these distances in various applications, and we also analyze the algorithmic aspects of this problem.

joint work with J. Weed, MIT.
