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››

Special PIMS Speaker Series - What's new for Microstructure?

We don't call it the Stone Age because we use stones. Any biped can do this. We call it the Stone Age because we fabricated stone tools. This require tool stones, special because of their microstructural texture. So what's new for microstructure? Jus more››

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››

40 Years of Linear Algebra and Optimization at Stanford

I came to Stanford in 1967 as a very green graduate student (not in today's ecological sense). Computer Science was a new department, as was Operations Research. The CS qualifying exams allowed 3 out of 5 topics, including numerical analysis. more››

Optimal and better transport plans II

We consider the Monge-Kantorovick transport problem in a purely measure theoretic setting, i.e. without imposing continuity assumptions on the cost function. It is known that transport plans which are concentrated on c-monotone sets are optimal, pr more››
