Sergii Myroshnychenko



Sergii Myroshnychenko is a PIMS PDF (2019) in the Convex Geometry group at the University of Alberta. He obtained his Ph.D. from Kent State University in 2017 under the supervision of Dmitry Ryabogin. Sergii's main scientific interests lie in Convex and Discrete Geometry and related topics of Probability Theory.




Shape recognition of convex bodies



A broad class of convex geometry problems deals with questions on retrieval of information about (convex) sets from data about different types of their projections, sections, or both. Examples of such assumptions are volume estimates, rigidity of structure, symmetry conditions etc.

In this talk, we will discuss known results and recent developments regarding the dual notions of point-projections and non-central sections of convex bodies. In particular, we provide a partial affirmative answer to the question on a shape recognition posed by A. Kurusa, and discuss a generalization of V. Klee's theorem for polyhedra.
