Greg Blekherman Lecturer at Berlin Mathematical School

Professor Greg Blekherman is one of the lecturers at the summer school "Convex Geometry - Discrete and Computational" to be held at the Berlin Mathematical School during June 29-July 10, 2015 and organized by Martin Henk (Technische Universität Berlin) and Raman Sanyal (Freie Universität Berlin).

The aim of the summer school is to introduce contemporary methods from discrete and computational convex geometry to a broad audience ranging from graduate students to postdocs and junior faculty. The central theme is the computation with non-linear convex bodies by way of structural insights. The courses will be supplemented with problem sessions and guest lectures.

Lectures include:

  • Alexander Barvinok (U Michigan) "Integer points in polyhedra"
  • Greg Blekherman (Georgia Tech) "Convex geometry of nonnegative polynomials"
  • Jesus de Loera (UC Davis) "Convex geometry problems from optimization"
  • Frank Vallentin (U Köln) "Packings, coverings, and embeddings"
