Grigory Ivanov "Mass transportation and convexity" mini-course

The goal of this mini-course is to demonstrate different geometric applications of mass transportation theory. Particularly, we aim to prove the classical Brunn-Minkowski inequality. We will discuss all the needed definitions starting with the definition of a convex set (that is, no prerequisites are required). We will focus on the geometric sense rather than going into technical details.
