Isoperimetric problems in Gaussian spaces have been studied since the 1970s. The study of these problems involve geometric measure theory, symmetrization techniques, spherical geometry and the study of diffusions associated with the heat equation. I will discuss some of the main ideas and results in this area along with some new results jointly with Joe Neeman.
