The Euclidean isoperimetric inequality is a famous problem going back more than 2000 years. Its Gaussian analogue, while more recent, has many important applications in probability and computer science. We will discuss the Gaussian isoperimetric problem, including Ledoux's remarkably simple proof, Carlen and Kerce's characterization of the equality case, and a new robustness result which improves, in some sense, work by Cianchi, Fusco, Maggi and Pratelli.
