Given initial and final mass distributions P and Q on Rkwe study dual and explicit solutions of the mass transhipment problem: [formula omitted] where mnis a signed measure with d.f. Fmn For the usual choice of the cost function, c(x, y) = ║ x – y║, the solution of the transhipment problem determines an ideal metric of order kn + 1.
