Computer Science/Discrete Mathematics Seminar II

On Chen’s recent breakthrough on the Kannan-Lovasz-Simonovits conjecture and Bourgain's slicing problem
10:30am|Simonyi Hall 101 and Remote Access - see Zoom link below

In the mid 80's, Bourgain asked the following question: Is there a universal constant $c>0$ such that every compact convex set $K$ in $R^n$, of unit volume, must contain a slice (namely, a set of the form $K \cap H$ for some affine hyperplane $H$)...
