Workshop in Analysis and Probability

Texas A&M University

Concentration Week on

Geometric Functional Analysis

College station, July 25-29 2016

This Concentration Week will focus on high dimensional phenomena concerning convex bodies, random polytopes, and random matrices. These topics lie in the intersection of probability, analysis, geometry, and combinatorics. The goal is to expose the variety of techniques used in the study of these objects and to explore the connections between them.


Talks will be held in Blocker building Room 166. Registration will be in Blocker Room 141. (Map and parking info)
