Monge-Ampère equations in convex shape recovery

March 22, 2021 at 3:45pm5:00pm EDT

Virtual (See event details)

This event has already occurred. The information may no longer be valid.

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.
