"High-dimensional distributions with convexity properties"


We review recent advances in the understanding of probability measures with geometric characteristics on linear spaces of high dimension. These advances include the central limit theorem for convex sets, according to which the uniform measure on a high-dimensional convex body has marginals that are approximately Gaussian.

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