SPEAKER: Evans Harrell (Georgia Tech)             ABSTRACT: I'll discuss a set of problems of convex geometry, where the point is to find the shape that optimizes a quantity of interest, and present various approaches to understanding and in some cases solving them. Among the problems discussed will some that were inspired by Mahler's famous conjecture about minimizing the product of the volumes of a convex body and of its polar dual body.
