Copulas, Markov Operators and Mass Transportation

Scope of the special session

The field of copulas is a very active one from the point of view of both the theory and the applications; from a theoretical point of view the connection with Markov Operators and Mass Transportation are relevant, while the applications in Mathematical Finance and Hydrology have motivated the interest in the theory during the last 15 fifteen years.
