Duality and existence for a class of mass transportation problems and economic applications
We establish duality, existence and uniqueness results for a class of mass transportations problems. We extend a technique of W. Gangbo  using the Euler Equation of the dual problem. This is done by introducing the h-Fenchel Transform and using its basic properties. The cost functions we consider satisfy a generalization of the so-called Spence-Mirrlees condition which is well-known by economists in dimension 1. We therefore end this article by a somehow unexpected application to the economic theory of incentives.
