Symplectic measurements and convex geometry

Thursday, April 15, 2010 -
12:30pm to 2:30pm
In this talk we discuss some interrelations between symplectic and convex geometry, and show how tools from one field can be used to tackle questions in the other field. In particular, we will discuss a symplectic isoperimetric inequality and its relation to billiard dynamics. No previous knowledge is assumed.
