Igor Rivin’s talk on October 8 2010

Igor will be speaking at the CUNY Graduate Center Complex Geometry and Dynamics Seminar on Friday, October 8th, at 2pm.

Abstract:  We will talk about (and mostly around) the question of figuring out how close metrics on two surfaces (and often curves) are, and show that almost every problem (that can be answered, anyhow) reduces to convex optimization.
