Math Seminar: "What About Median of Shapes?"
4:10pm Neill 5W
*Abstract*: Most of you heard the median of numbers, but what about the median of shapes? What is that?! Bring your own definition of median shapes to the talk, and we can share our ideas together! In this talk, I will define the median of shapes using the flat norm. I will then prove some properties of the median of 1-dim currents with shared boundary in R^2, and investigate some interesting examples in codimension 1 and 2. Hope to see you there!
