Math Seminar: "The Coarea Formula"
4:10pm Neill 5W
Kevin R. Vixie
*Abstract*: I will explain this beautiful and useful piece of geometric analysis that was introduced by Herbert Federer in 1959 as part of his paper on curvature measures. It is a very powerful generalization of the change of variables formula that is learned in calculus and has become a standard tool in the tool box of analysts who work at the intersection of geometry and analysis.
