Let $\Delta_k$ be the k-simplex and $\mu$ a non-negative measure over $\Delta_k$. I want to know if there exists a function $u : \Delta_k \to \mathbb{R}$ such that $u$ is convex, $u(e_i) = 0$ for all vertices $e_i$ of $\Delta_k$, and $M[u] = \mu$ where $M[u] = \det\left(\frac{\partial^2 u}{\partial x_j \partial x_k}\right)$ is the Monge-Ampère operator. Furthermore, I'd like to know if the solution is unique. Any techniques for how one might solve a specific instance of this problem would be a bonus.

My background is not in PDEs but the closest I've found to an answer seem to be in [1] and [2] where the boundary conditions are more restrictive and the domain is required to be strictly convex for uniqueness.

Any other pointers to solving this type of problem would be greatly appreciated.
