Geometry of isotropic convex bodies

Introductory Workshop: phenomena in high dimensions August 21, 2017 - August 25, 2017

August 24, 2017 (11:00 AM PDT - 12:00 PM PDT)
Speaker(s): Apostolos Giannopoulos (National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (University of Athens))

The aim of the talks will be to present the main results on the geometry of isotropic convex bodies in connection with a number of well-known open questions regarding the distribution of volume in high-dimensional convex bodies, such as the slicing problem, the thin shell conjecture and the Kannan-Lovász-Simonovits conjecture.
