In science:

As the interparticle spacing decreases by compressing the floating particles together, the electronic transport goes from hopping to tunnelling to ordinary metallic transport.
Quantum $k$-core conduction on the Bethe lattice
One of the most important problems in transportation is to balance load on nodes and edges across the whole network so as to enhance the network’s overall transporting capacity.
Mean First Hitting Time of Searching for Path Through Random Walks on Complex Networks
Since these measures are much less regular than optimal transportation theory requires, we introduce a new notion of transportation which is intuitively some kind of multistep transportation.
Optimal transport for multifractal random measures. Applications
The purpose of this paper is to investigate (optimal) transportation problems associated to these measures. A transport map between two probability measures µ, ν is a map that pushes µ forward to ν .
Optimal transport for multifractal random measures. Applications
The transport map is said to be optimal if it realizes the infimum of a cost functional among all the possible transport maps.
Optimal transport for multifractal random measures. Applications
So, a priori, two-step optimal transports may be as difficult to exhibit as optimal transports.
Optimal transport for multifractal random measures. Applications
We cannot give a rigorous argument to that conjecture because the general theory of optimal transport suffers a definite lack of strong estimates concerning the optimal transport maps.
Optimal transport for multifractal random measures. Applications
If the coupling π is deterministic, the corresponding transport map T is called optimal transport map.
Optimal transport for multifractal random measures. Applications
In the same way, T : X → X is an optimal transport map such that T #µ = ν if and only if θ = f ◦ T ◦ f −1 is an optimal transport map such that θ#(f #µ) = f #ν for the Euclidian quadratic cost on BR .
Optimal transport for multifractal random measures. Applications
By studying the relaxation of the spin modulation, ˆM1 , we are specifically probing the spin transport time which may diverge differently from the energy transport time close to the critical point.
