Invariants in convex geometry and Banach space theory

August 20 to August 24, 2012

at the

American Institute of Mathematics, Palo Alto, California

organized by

Grigoris Paouris, Carsten Schuett, and Elisabeth M. Werner

This workshop, sponsored by AIM and the NSF, will be devoted to invariants and their associated inequalities. Invariants and their associated inequalities play a central role in convex geometry and geometric analysis on the one side, and in Banach space theory on the other. Moreover, in recent years work is being done on various problems that are related to invariants from other fields. While there have been many interactions between the different communities in the last decade, no systematic effort has been devoted to specifically address interactions between the various invariants occurring in the two fields.

The aim of the workshop is to investigate invariants related to a few important problems at the intersection of geometric analysis and in Banach space theory.

Some of the topics that the workshop will focus on are the following:

The workshop will differ from typical conferences in some regards. Participants will be invited to suggest open problems and questions before the workshop begins, and these will be posted on the workshop website. These include specific problems on which there is hope of making some progress during the workshop, as well as more ambitious problems which may influence the future activity of the field. Lectures at the workshop will be focused on familiarizing the participants with the background material leading up to specific problems, and the schedule will include discussion and parallel working sessions.

The deadline to apply for support to participate in this workshop has passed.
