Abstract/Media

(joint work with Aukosh Jagannath and Assaf Naor.) How can one prove a sharp inequality? Symmetrization, Fourier analysis, and probability are often used, and we will survey some of these methods through examples. Within this context, we then survey sharp constants in Grothendieck inequalities, leading to some recent work on computing the best constant for a Grothendieck-type inequality of Khot and Naor.
