I was also struggling with Exercise 2.36... I think that I am now able to solve it, although it seems that it is more difficult than it appears...
The key seems to be the following theorem.
Theorem: ...

### Optimal transport: how $\varphi^c$ can be written as $\varphi^c = \lim _{\ell \rightarrow \infty} \psi_{\ell}$?

Here is an example which shows that also the continuity of $\varphi$ does not help. Let $X = \mathbb R$ and $Y = \{0\}$. In the sequel, we will just drop the $Y$-argument. Let $c \equiv 1$, $\varphi \...
