Abstract

The aim of the talks will be to present the main results on the geometry of isotropic convex bodies in connection with a number of well-known open questions regarding the distribution of volume in high-dimensional convex bodies, such as the slicing problem, the thin shell conjecture and the Kannan-Lovász-Simonovits conjecture.
