Discrete Geometry and Convexity - 2023 Fall (Aug-Dec)

Organizers Imre Bárány, Márton Naszódi, János Pach, Gábor Tardos, Géza Tóth
Publication date 2021-08-15
Poster of the Semester

Discrete Geometry and Convexity have always been intimately related to other parts of mathematics, including algebra, analysis and number theory. During the last couple of decades, through an amalgamation of these classical disciplines with  computational geometry, a new field was born which has undergone explosive growth resulting in spectacular breakthroughs such as the solution of the sphere packing problem in 8 dimensions or Erdős's distinct distances problem.

The main goals of the special semester are to bring together a mix of senior and junior colleagues to advance research in Discrete Geometry and Convexity and to foster and enhance the interaction and synergy between the study of purely combinatorial properties of discrete geometric structures and the design of efficient algorithms for their construction.
