Lecture 1: Concentration of measure (tutorial)

Thursday 5th September 2013 - 14:00 to 15:00
INI Seminar Room 1
I will present an overview of the concentration of measure phenomenon, results and techniques, starting with Levy's isoperimetric inequality on the Euclidean sphere and following up with examples in other settings: Gaussian, discrete etc. I will also sketch some applications such as Dvoretzky's theorem on almost spherical sections of convex bodies and indicate some links to quantum information.
