  Abstract: The optimal transportation problem was first introduced by Monge in 1781. By Kantorovich's duality, this problem can be formulated as a Monge-Ampere type equation subject to the second boundary condition. For the special quadratic cost function, the existence and regularity have been settled down two decades ago. For general cost functions, the existence and regularity of solutions have been obtained under certain conditions. But the natural cost function, namely when the cost is proportional to the distance the mass is transported, is at the borderline of these conditions. With my collaborators Qi-Rui Li and Filippo Santambrogio, we recently studied the regularity of Monge's problem and discovered some delicate results. We proved that in a smooth approximation, the eigenvalues of the Jacobian matrix of the optimal mapping are uniformly bounded but the mapping itself may not be Holder continuous. But in dimension two the mapping is continuous. In this talk I will discuss recent developments in this direction.
