In this talk, we will review some basic ideas about optimal transport, and see one application in metrizing the space of probability distributions. Further, we will see how such a metrization can be used to derive fixed points of distribution valued mappings (mappings which take one probability distribution to another).

I will only assume basic familiarity with linear programming for the purpose of this talk.
