Optimal Transport Methods in Economics

Princeton University Press

This text grew out of a graduate course I gave at MIT in the Spring 2015 semester. It provides an introduction to the theory of Optimal Transportation, with a focus on applications to Economic Modeling and Econometrics. It intends to cover the basic results in Optimal Transportation, in connection with linear programming, network flow problems, convex analysis, and computational geometry. Several applications to various fields in economic analysis (econometrics, family economics, labor economics and contract theory) are provided.
The book is available on here.

The programming examples and solution programs to the exercises are implemented in R and are available here.
