Topic: 

The Monge-Ampere eigenvalue problem, Brunn-Minkowski inequality and global smoothness of the eigenfunctions

Description: 

In this talk, I will first introduce the Monge-Ampere eigenvalue problem on general bounded convex domains and related analysis including the Brunn-Minkowski inequality for the eigenvalue. Then I will discuss the recent resolution, in joint work with Ovidiu Savin, of global smoothness of the eigenfunctions of the Monge-Ampere operator on smooth, bounded and uniformly convex domains in all dimensions. A key ingredient in our analysis is boundary Schauder estimates for certain degenerate Monge-Ampere equations.
