Abstract

We show that any L1 embedding of the transportation cost (a.ka. Earthmover) metric on probability measures supported on the grid {0,1,..., n}2 ⊆ ℝ2 incurs distortion Ω (√log n). We also use Fourier analytic techniques to construct a simple L1 embedding of this space which has distortion O (log n).
