Abstract

top
We study some problems of optimal distribution of masses, and we show that they can be characterized by a suitable Monge-Kantorovich equation. In the case of scalar state functions, we show the equivalence with a mass transport problem, emphasizing its geometrical approach through geodesics. The case of elasticity, where the state function is vector valued, is also considered. In both cases some examples are presented.
