which is built on their gradient-flow-like structure in the space of finite nonnegative Radon measures on , endowed with the recently introduced Hellinger-Kantorovich distance HKΛ,Σ. It is proved that, under natural general assumptions on and , the Minimizing Movement scheme
yields weak solutions to the above equation as the discrete time step size τ ↓ 0. Moreover, a superdifferentiability property of the Hellinger-Kantorovich distance HKΛ,Σ, which will play an important role in this context, is established in the general setting of a separable Hilbert space; that result will constitute a starting point for the study of the differentiability of HKΛ,Σ along absolutely continuous curves which will be carried out in a subsequent paper.
