AB - In this paper we consider the class a functionals (introduced in [Brancolini, Buttazzo, and Santambrogio, J. Eur. Math. Soc. (JEMS), 8 (2006), pp. 415-434] $\\\\mathcal{G}_{r,p}$ defined on Lipschitz curves $\\\\gamma$ valued in the $p$-Wasserstein space. The problem considered is the following: given a measure $\\\\mu$, give conditions in order to assure the existence of a curve $\\\\gamma$ such that $\\\\gamma(0)=\\\\mu$, $\\\\gamma(1)=\\\\delta_{x_0}$, and $\\\\mathcal{G}_{r,p}(\\\\gamma)<+\\\\infty$. To this end, new estimates on $\\\\mathcal{G}_{r,p}(\\\\mu)$ are given, and a notion of dimension of a measure (called path dimension) is introduced: the path dimension specifies the values of the parameters $(r,p)$ for which the answer to the previous reachability problem is positive. Finally, we compare the path dimension with other known dimensions.
