Symplectic measurements and convex geometry

Symplectic measurements and convex geometry

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.
