Andreas Holmsen, Some recent results on geometric transversals
January 11 Tuesday @ 4:30 PM - 5:30 PM KST
A geometric transversal to a family of convex sets in $\mathbb R^d$ is an affine flat that intersects the members of the family. While there exists a far-reaching theory concerning 0-dimensional transversals (intersection patterns of convex sets), much less is known when it comes to higher-dimensional transversals. In this talk, I will present some new and old results and problems regarding geometric transversals, based on joint work with Otfried Cheong and Xavier Goaoc.
