**Speaker**: Jacob (Koby) Rubinstein, Mathematics and VP for Research, Technion

**Title**: Optimal Transport and Geometrical Optics

**Abstract**: We present a deep connection between the Monge optimal transport problem in Economics and the foundations of Geometrical Optics. In particular we derive a natural extension of the Fermat principle of least time. The theoretical work is applied to problems in imaging and non-imaging optics.
