Show List of Speakers

This workshop will be on topics connected with Asymptotic Geometric Analysis - a relatively new field, the young finite dimensional cousin of Banach Space theory, functional analysis and classical convexity. We study high, but finite, dimensional objects, where the disorder of many parameters and many dimensions is regularized by convexity assumptions.  ​This workshop is open to all mathematicians.   Group Photo
