Title: A combinatorial approach to Minkowski tensors of polytopesSpeaker: Amy Wiebe Affiliation: Freie Universität Berlin Zoom: Contact Karen Yeats
Intrinsic volumes of a convex body provide scalar data (volume, surface area, Euler characteristic, etc. ) about the geometry of a convex body independent of the ambient space. Minkowski tensors are the tensor-valued generalization of intrinsic volumes. They provide more complex geometric information about a convex body, such as its shape, orientation, and more.
