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.
There will be 4 lectures with the following schedule:
Password: first 6 decimal places of $\pi$ after the decimal point
You can also write to Alexander Polyanskii (email@example.com) if you want to be added to mailing list.
Everyone is invited to attend. The language of the mini-course is English. The event is aimed at master and graduate students, as well as researchers in the field of combinatorics.
