From discrete to continuous Wardrop equilibria
Jean-Bernard Baillon Guillaume Carlier
The notion of Wardrop equilibrium in congested networks has been very popular in congested traffic modelling since its introduction in the early 50's, it is also well-known that Wardrop equilibria may be obtained by some convex minimization problem. In this paper, in the framework of $\Gamma$-convergence theory, we analyze what happens when a cartesian network becomes very dense. The continuous model we obtain this way is very similar to the continuous model of optimal transport with congestion of Carlier, Jimenez and Santambrogio [6] except that it keeps track of the anisotropy of the network.

Numerical approximation of continuous traffic congestion equilibria
Fethallah Benmansour Guillaume Carlier Gabriel Peyré Filippo Santambrogio
Starting from a continuous congested traffic framework recently introduced in [8], we present a consistent numerical scheme to compute equilibrium metrics. We show that equilibrium metric is the solution of a variational problem involving geodesic distances. Our discretization scheme is based on the Fast Marching Method. Convergence is proved via a $\Gamma$-convergence result and numerical results are given.

Remarks on a class of kinetic models of granular media: Asymptotics and entropy bounds
Martial Agueh Guillaume Carlier Reinhard Illner
We obtain new a priori estimates for spatially inhomogeneous solutions of a kinetic equation for granular media, as first proposed in [3] and, more recently, studied in [1]. In particular, we show that a family of convex functionals on the phase space is non-increasing along the flow of such equations, and we deduce consequences on the asymptotic behaviour of solutions. Furthermore, using an additional assumption on the interaction kernel and a ``potential for interaction'', we prove a global entropy estimate in the one-dimensional case.
