Hope to see you there. For information about future colloquia, see <http://www.math.tau.ac.il/~klartagb/colloq_2011.html> You are all welcome to suggest colloquium speakers, especially for January and for the second semester. Yours, Bo'az ------------------------- Abstract: Valuations are finitely additive measures on convex compact sets. Relatively recently it was realized that a class of smooth valuations have a product structure. We will discuss it in the cases of isometry invariant and unitarily invariant valuations. Then we explain how the theory of valuations can be applied to integral geometry. --------------------------------------------------------- Technion Math Net-2 (TECHMATH2) Editor: Michael Cwikel <techm@math.technion.ac.il> Announcement from: Bo'az Klartag <klartagb@post.tau.ac.il>
