"The minimum area convex lattice n-gon"

** Abstract: **
Let A(n) denote the minimum area of convex lattice n-gons.
(Here lattice is the usual lattice of integer points in R^2.) G. E.
Andrews proved in 1963 that A(n)>cn^3 for a suitable positive c. We
show here that the limit of A(n)/n^3 exists. Our computations suggest what the
value of the limit is. We will also describe the shape of the minimizing
convex lattice n-gon.

This is joint work with Norihide Tokushige.

Light refreshments will be served in the faculty lounge at 3:30.
