Thesis topic proposal
Problems in Discrete and Convex Geometry


Institute: Eötvös Loránd University, Budapest
mathematics and computing
Doctoral School of Mathematics

Thesis supervisor: Márton Naszódi
Location of studies (in Hungarian): ELTE, Institute of Mathematics, Dept. of Geometry
Abbreviation of location of studies: ELTE

Description of the research topic:

At the beginning of the research, the student learns about a number of current problems in geometry, and familiarizes themselves with relevant methods. Later on, they study questions of their choice. A few typical topics follow. How to cover the d-dimensional Euclidean space with translates of a given convex body? Quantitative versions of Helly's theorem. How to represent point sets in high-dimensional space in lower dimensions? For more information, you are encouraged to contact me at marton.naszodi@ttk.elte.hu
