ACO The ACO Seminar (2018–2019)

Regular covering for non-symmetric convex bodies


Regular covering is a term in Asymptotic Convex Geometry describing an efficient way to cover a convex body by affine images of the ball. We use a convex-geometric argument to give an extension of Pisier's theorem on the existence of regular covering to the setting of non-symmetric convex bodies (albeit with worse quantitative conclusions).

Before the talk, at 3:10pm, there will be tea and cookies in Wean 6220.
