Paouris: Psi_2-Estimates for Linear Functionals on Zonoids -- G. Schechtman, N. Tomczak-Jaegermann and R. Vershynin: Maximal l_p^n-Structures in Spaces with Extremal Parameters -- C. Schtt and E. Werner: Polytopes with Vertices Chosen Randomly from the Boundary of a Convex Body -- Seminar Talks (with Related Workshop and Conference Talks).
Summary: The proceedings of the Israeli GAFA seminar on Geometric Aspect of Functional Analysis during the years 2001-2002 follow the long tradition of the previous volumes. They continue to reflect the general trends of the Theory. Several papers deal with the slicing problem and its relatives. Some deal with the concentration phenomenon and related topics. In many of the papers there is a deep interplay between Probability and Convexity. The volume contains also a profound study on approximating convex sets by randomly chosen polytopes and its relation to floating bodies, an important subject in Classical Convexity Theory. All the papers of this collection are original research papers.
