The Plane With Density r^p and The Poincaré Conjecture

Putting a density (as in calculus or physics) on the plane can make for some interesting geometry. Perelman used such an idea in his proof of the Poincaré conjecture. No prerequisites.   more››

Manifolds With Density

The idea of putting a density on a manifold has appeared throughout mathematics, recently in Perelman's paper on the Poincaré Conjecture. The prime example is Gauss space: R^n with Gaussian density. Despite interesting progress, the geometry of mani   more››

Random projections of regular polytopes and neighborliness

If an N-dimensional regular crosspolytope is projected to a uniform random d-dimensional subspace and N is large, then the projection has strong neighborliness properties, with high probability. Strong results in this direction were recently obtai   more››

Polytopes and arrangements: diameter and curvature

By analogy with the Hirsh conjecture, we conjecture that the order of the largest total curvature of the central path associated to a polytope is the number of inequalities defining the polytope. By analogy with a result of Dedieu, Malajovich and   more››
