Generalized Sinkhorn Iterations for Regularizing Inverse Problems Using Optimal Mass TransportMS73

The optimal transport problem gives a geometric framework for optimal mappings, but is computationally expensive and often intractable for large imaging problems. A recent development to address this is to use Sinkhorn iterations, and we extend this idea for fast computation of the proximal operator of the optimal transport cost. This opens up for using optimal transport in variational formulations for solving inverse problems in imaging, e.g., spatio-temporal reconstruction and problems with prior information.
