BMS/IMPAN Block Course: Convex Geometry Related to Hamiltonian Group Actions

This is a block course held jointly by the Institute for Mathematics of the Polish Academy of Science (IMPAN) and Berlin Mathematical School (BMS), organized by Tadeusz Januszkiewicz and Michael Joswig.

The course will be held one week in Berlin (Nov 27 - Dec 1, 2017) and one week in Bedlewo (Mar 19 - Mar 23, 2018). There will be lectures and exercises during these two weeks. For the time in-between there will be additional project work.

The course is also open for students of all three Berlin universities, who can get credits equivalent to a regular course "Discrete Geometry III" of TU Berlin. There was a first meeting on Tuesday, Nov 21, 10:00 in MA 621, where mathematical requirements, the organization of the projects etc were discussed.

It will be assumed that the participants have some basic knowledge in the following subjects: cellular homology and cohomology, polytopes and linear programming, smooth manifolds, group actions.

Topics include the following:
