  title={A Damped Newton Algorithm for Generated Jacobian Equations},
  author={Anatole Gallou{\"e}t and Quentin M{\'e}rigot and Boris Thibert},
Generated Jacobian Equations have been introduced by Trudinger [Disc. cont. dyn. sys (2014), pp. 1663–1681] as a generalization of Monge-Ampère equations arising in optimal transport. In this paper, we introduce and study a damped Newton algorithm for solving these equations in the semi-discrete setting, meaning that one of the two measures involved in the problem is finitely supported and the other one is absolutely continuous. We also present a numerical application of this algorithm to the… Expand

An algorithm for optimal transport between a simplex soup and a point cloud
The convergence with linear speed of a damped Newton's algorithm is proved to solve the optimal transport problem as the resolution of a non-linear system where one wants to prescribe the quantity of mass in each cell of the so-called Laguerre diagram. Expand
Far-field reflector problem and intersection of paraboloids
A numerical approach to the far field reflector problem which is an inverse problem arising in geometric optics is proposed and it is shown that computing this intersection amounts to computing the intersection of a power diagram (a generalization of the Voronoi diagram) with the unit sphere. Expand
