Pure Maths Colloquium: Approaching the Willmore conjecture via integral geometry
Presented by "Peter Topping (University of Warwick, Coventry) ",
4 March 2002 16:00 in CM221
" Integral geometry often gives simple solutions to otherwise difficult problems. We will take a look at what it can
say about the Willmore conjecture.
As a warm-up for the uninitiated, try proving: "Any smooth simple closed
curve on the unit 2-sphere which enters every closed hemisphere, must have length at least 2\pi."
(Solution in the lecture.)"
