The Kantorovich duality was a big breakthrough in the optimal transportation problem. The Kantorovich duality provides information of the transportation plan. In this talk, I present two proofs of the Kantorovich duality. The first proof uses the c-convex functions and Arzela-Ascoli to construct a solution of the dual problem. The second proof uses a geometric property of the support of the transportation plan which is called c-cyclical monotonicity. We are going to use the same zoom link and passcode as before.
