This survey corresponds to some talks I recently gave in different seminars and workshops, and in particular at the SMAI 2017 French meeting.
This is a survey about the theory of density-constrained evolutions in the Wasserstein space developed by B. Maury, the author, and their collaborators as a model for crowd motion. Connections with microscopic models and other PDEs are presented, as well as several time-discretization schemes based on variational techniques, together with the main theorems guaranteeing their convergence as a tool to prove existence results. Then, a section is devoted to the uniqueness question, and a last one to different numerical methods inspired by optimal transport.
