We present an numerical method to solve the L2 Monge–Kantorovich problem. The method is based on a continuation approach where we iteratively solve the linearized mass conservation equation, progressively decreasing a constant lift-up to map compact support densities in the limit. A Lagrangian as well as an Eulerian integration scheme are proposed. Several examples relative to the transport of two-dimensional densities are investigated, showing that the present methods can significantly reduce the computational effort.
