Convex Geometry and its Applications
Zeitraum06 Dec - 12 Dec 2015
The past 30 years have not only seen substantial progress and lively activity in various areas within convex geometry, e.g., in asymptotic geometric analysis, valuation theory, the $L_p$-Brunn-Minkowski theory and stochastic geometry, but also an increasing amount and variety of applications of convex geometry to other branches of mathematics (and beyond), e.g. to PDEs, statistics, discrete geometry, optimization, or geometric algorithms in computer science. Thus convex geometry is a flourishing and attractive field, which is also reflected by the considerable number of talented young mathematicians at this meeting.
