Abstract

Convex geometry and partial differential equations are two important mathematical branches. A constantly growing interaction between them in the last decades has resulted in significant progress in both areas. The goal is to solve questions in analysis, by combining the (affine) geometry of convex bodies and methods from partial differential equations, in particular, Monge-Ampere type equations. First major results include affine inequalities that are stronger than their Euclidean counterparts. Applications appear in information theory, probability theory and stochastic geometry.
