In the context of Convex Geometry or Probability, the term localization
refers to a technique which reduces an n-dimensional integral inequality on R^n
to a related one dimensional inequality on R. Localization is particularly of
interest in the context of high-dimensional phenomena, as it obtains results
solely in terms of a parameter of the measure's concavity. We will discuss
a generalizations of this technique to infinite dimensional spaces, as well as
