Nonlocal-interaction equations on graphs and their continuum limits
We consider transport equations on graphs, where mass is distributed over vertices and is transported along the edges. The first part of the talk will deal with the graph analogue of the Wasserstein distance, in the particular case where the notion of density along edges is inspired by the upwind numerical schemes. This natural notion of interpolation however leads to the fact that Wasserstein distance is only a quasi-metric. In the second part of the talk we will interpret the nonlocal-interaction equation equations on graphs as gradient flows with respect to the graph-Wasserstain quasi-metric of the nonlocal-interaction energy. We show that for graphs representing data sampled from a manifold, the solutions of the nonlocal-interaction equations on graphs converge to solutions of an integral equation on the manifold. We also show that the limiting equation is a gradient flow of the nonlocal-interaction energy with respect to a nonlocal analogue of the Wasserstein metric.
