Computational Semi-Discrete Optimal Transport with General Storage Fees

Mohit Bansil

We propose and analyze a modified damped Newton algorithm to solve the semi-discrete optimal transport with storage fees. We prove global linear convergence for a wide range of storage fee functions, the main assumption being that each warehouse's storage costs are independent. We show that if $F$ is an arbitrary storage fee function that satisfies this independence condition then $F$ can be perturbed into a new storage fee function so that our algorithm converges. We also show that the optimizers are stable under these perturbations. Furthermore, our results come with quantitative rates.
