The Department of Mathematics in the College of Arts and Sciences is honored to welcome Dr. Yiming Zhao to deliver the weekly colloquium. Dr. Zhao is a C.L.E. Moore Instructor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he works in geometric analysis, nonlinear PDE, and convex analysis.
Abstract: In this talk, we will discuss how Monge-Ampère type equations naturally arise from the study of convex bodies. In particular, Dr. Zhao will talk about three major Minkowski-type problems and, along the way, their connections to differential geometry, optimal mass transport theory, geometric and functional inequalities, algebraic geometry, and applied math.
