About the method of characteristics (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
While studying the mean field dynamics of a systems of bosons, one is led to solve a transport equation for a probability measure in an infinite dimensional phase-space. Since those probability measures are characterized after testing with cylindrical or polynomial observables, which make classes which are not invariant after composing with a nonlinear flow. Thus the standard method of characteristics for transport equations cannot be extended at once to the infinite dimensional case. A solution comes from techniques developed for optimal transport and a probabilistic interpretation of trajectories.
