Postdoc Seminars

IMA Postdoc Seminars provide postdocs in residence the opportunity to give talks of interest to the mathematical community (though they may not necessarily be related to the annual theme). In addition, IMA visitors and University of Minnesota faculty also present on subjects of interest to the postdocs.

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.

  • The Unconditional Case of the S-Inequality for Exponential Measure

    Abstract

    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).
