On some partition problems and their configuration spaces
  SMC Colloquium

Wednesday 12 October 2011
from 14:30 to 15:30
at Oskar Kleins auditorium
Speaker : Günter M. Ziegler (FU Berlin)
Abstract :

This lecture will be a report about a research endeavour that started with a seemingly harmless problem about cutting an arbitrary polygon into N pieces of equal area — and led us on a path that connects quite diverse mathematical subjects such as generalized Voronoi domains, optimal transportation, configuration spaces, subspace arrangements, and computations in equivariant cohomology. (Joint work with Pavle V. M. Blagojevic.)
