Optimal Transportation and Moment Measures

We will consider the problem of optimal transportation of measures: Given two probability measures in a Euclidean space, find a good map which transports one to the other. This problem has a rich structure, and we will discuss its connections to the Minkowski problem in convex geometry and to toric Kahler-Einstein metrics in complex geometry. No special prior knowledge is assumed.
