Postdoc Seminars

IMA Postdoc Seminars are given weekly throughout the fall and spring semesters. Postdocs present on a variety of mathematical topics that may be unrelated to the current annual program theme. IMA visitors and University of Minnesota faculty are also invited to present on subjects of interest.

Zach Hamaker of the University of Minnesota will be organizing the 2014-2015 seminar series.

Titles, abstracts, and speakers for each seminar will be posted as available. All seminars are from 2:00pm - 3:00pm unless otherwise noted.

    Let m be the exponential distribution, i.e., the density of m is equal to 1/2^n exp(-(|x_1|+...+|x_n|)). Let K be an unconditional convex set and let P be a strip of the form [-p,p] times R^{n-1} with m(K)=m(P). We prove that m(tK) geq m(tP) for t>1.

    This is a joint work with Tomasz Tkocz (University of Warwick).
