Teaching and Such
I am away from the CWRU campus for 2017-18 (see below in What's Happening ).
Some courses I taught at CWRU in the not-too-distant past
And here are graduate courses taught in Paris
Spring
2010 Fall
2017 Spring

Alice and Bob Meet Banach
Alice and Bob Meet Banach , a book written with Guillaume Aubrun, which appeared in September 2017.
Advertising the book in the home country of the third main character.

My Research Interests
My primary field is Functional Analysis, more
specifically Geometry of Banach Spaces, Convexity and, particularly, their
combinatorial and probabilistic aspects.
I am also interested in those aspects of other fields
such as Mathematical Physics, Computer Science, Operator Theory,
Approximation Theory, or Operation Research that appeal to convexity
and/or exhibit probabilistic or geometric flavor
(including, but not limited to, Random Matrices and Quantum Information Theory).
Have a pet problem that could fit there? Drop me a line at

What's Happening (2006-2007, 2007-2008,...)
In the fall of 2017 I will be co-organizing a
trimester on "Analysis In Quantum Information Theory"
at the Institut Henri Poincaré in Paris.
I will be based at the
Institut de Mathématiques de Jussieu-Paris Rive Gauche from July 2017 through July 2018.
I am on a sabbatical leave for 2013-14. In particular,
in the fall of 2013 I will be in Cambridge, U.K., participating in
the programme
Mathematical Challenges in Quantum Information at the
Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences.
I will be traveling intermittently in the winter, spring and summer of 2014.
I will be in residence at CWRU starting in the Fall of 2014.

In August 2010, I am on the CWRU campus, back from the
Equipe d'Analyse Fonctionnelle
at the
Université Pierre et Marie CURIE in Paris, France.
However, I will be traveling extensively in the fall, participating in
the program
on Asymptotic Geometric Analysis at the
Fields Institute in Toronto and
in the
semester on Quantum Information Theory at the
Institut Mittag-Leffler in Djursholm, Sweden.
Since January 2009 I am
Kerr Professor of Mathematics .
Since June 2007 I have been involved in the NSF Focused Research Group project:
Fourier analytic and probabilistic methods in geometric
functional analysis and convexity . In addition to CWRU, the FRG project
involves Kent State University, University of Michigan and University of Missouri.
The project provides numerous research opportunities, particularly for graduate
students and postdocs.
A major FRG-related event was an
international conference
on "Perspectives in High Dimensions," which took place in Cleveland from August 1 to August 7, 2010.
[The project ended on May 31, 2012.]
In August 2006 I took part in the International
Congress of Mathematicians in Madrid, Spain. Here are the slides
from my lecture on Convexity, Complexity, and High Dimensions .
Earlier in 2006, I was involved in the
trimester on Phenomena in High Dimensions at
the Institut Henri Poincare,
where I taught
this course.
And here is another event at IHP in 2007.

Other Interests
Other than that, I like travel, sailing
(Navigare Necesse Est ,
CNIF ),
diving, skiing, tennis, table tennis, bridge ...
And here are my daughters,
Martina
and Natalie
(as seen by an Ukrainian artist in Kraków in 1997)
and
Emily (testing a certain body of water in 2005).
