A survey of discrepancy theory
Nicholas Harvey (University of British Columbia)

Discrepancy theory has been an important research area in combinatorics and geometry for several decades. The Marcus-Spielman-Srivastava theorem can be viewed as a "spectral" discrepancy theorem. In this talk we will survey some of the classical results and recent progress in this area, as well as mentioning some open questions.
