Participant Testimonials

May 21 - May 26, 2017

From our recent mathematical preprint, available at "... A major part of the work was done when both authors were visiting the Banff International Research Station during May 21–26, 2017. We would like to thank BIRS for hospitality ..."

Boaz Klartag Mathematics, Tel Aviv University

During the workshop I had a very productive cooperation which will most likely result in a new paper. The workshop brought together experts in discrete and analytic aspects of convexity. I learned a lot from the talks in discrete geometry.

Alexander Koldobsky Mathematics, University of Missouri

This workshop was very interesting! The talks were great!

Galyna Livshyts Mathematics, Georgia institute of technology

The BIRS workshop made it possible to start a new collaboration with Peter Pivovarov whom I invited to visit my home university in July. Apart from that I did gain deeper insight into some of the problems that my colleagues and I have been trying to solve over the last decade and I hope that new ideas will arise from this.

Franz Schuster Professor
Institute of Discrete Mathematics and Geometry, Vienna University of Technology

As always, my stay at BIRS was very useful and productive. The lectures and interactions with colleagues provided me with new ideas and potential new research collaborations.
