Augmented Lagrangian methods for transport optimization, Mean-Field Games and degenerate PDEs

Abstract : Many problems from mass transport can be reformulated as variational problems under a prescribed divergence constraint (static problems) or subject to a time dependent continuity equation which again can also be formulated as a divergence constraint but in time and space. The variational class of Mean-Field Games introduced by Lasry and Lions may also be interpreted as a generalisation of the time-dependent optimal transport problem. Following Benamou and Brenier, we show that augmented Lagrangian methods are well-suited to treat convex but nonsmooth problems. It includes in particular Monge historic optimal transport problem. A Finite Element discretization and implementation of the method is used to provide numerical simulations and a convergence study.
