Title: Some aspects of integral geometry
Speaker: Sreekar Vadlamani (TIFR-CAM, Bangalore)
Date: 22 April 2016
Time: 2:15 – 3:15 pm
Venue: LH-1, Mathematics Department

One of the earliest instance of integral geometric discussion can be traced back to Buffon through the “needle problem”. The solution, as we know now, is based on a platform of theory of measures on geometrical spaces which are invariant under some group operations. In this talk, we shall walk through this subject by following a specific line of problems/results called “kinematic fundamental formulae” by studying some specific examples.
