# Jerusalem Analysis Seminar: "Optimal Gaussian Partitions", Elchanan Mossel (MIT)

12:00pm to 1:00pm

## Location:

Ross 70

How should we partition the Gaussian space into k parts in a way that minimizes Gaussian surface area, maximize correlation or simulate a specific distribution. The problem of Gaussian partitions was studied since the 70s first as a generalization of the isoperimetric problem in the context of the heat equation. It found a renewed interest in the context of the double bubble theorem proven in geometric measure theory and due to connection to problems in theoretical computer science and social choice theory.
