Invariants in convex geometry and Banach space theory

August 20 to August 24, 2012

at the

American Institute of Mathematics, San Jose, California

organized by

Grigoris Paouris, Carsten Schuett, and Elisabeth M. Werner

Original Announcement

This workshop 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:
