Geometry, analysis, and information theory

Deane Yang (Polytechnic University)

That there are deep connections between geometry, analysis, and information theory has been known since the work of Brascamp-Lieb and Cover-Dembo-Thomas. The talk will discuss recent developments, including a dictionary between information theory and L2 Brunn-Minkowski theory and a geometric version of the Cramer-Rao inequality.
