1.1 Mass Transportation Problems in Probability Theory This chapter provides a basic introduction to mass transportation pr- lems (MTPs). We introduce some of the methods used in studying MTPs: dualrepresentations,explicitsolutions,topologicalproperties.Weshallalso discuss some applications of MTPs. The following measure-theoretic problems are well-known continuous casesofMKPs(see,forexample,Dudley(1976),LevinandMilyutin(1979), R¨ uschendorf (1979, 1981), Kemperman (1983), Kellerer (1984), Rachev (1984b, 1991c) and the references therein).
