Undergraduate Colloquium:Easy-to-explain but hard-to-solve problems in Convex Geometry
October 11, 2007 (01:00 PM PDT - 02:00 PM PDT)
Jesus De Loera (University of California, Davis)
Examples of convex sets are balls, cubes, triangles. These are figures that do not have "holes" or "valleys". Unknown to most people convex bodies are finding more and more applications in such diverse fields as optimization, statistics, algebra, or computer science. In this talk we will convince the audience that there is life after calculus and that even the most seasoned of mathematicians can't solve easy questions about convex bodies.
