This choice of unique papers on the topic of the Israeli GAFA seminar (on Geometric features of practical research) in the course of the years 2004-2005 follows the lengthy culture of the former volumes that mirror the overall tendencies of the speculation and are a resource of suggestion for study.

Most of the papers care for diversified features of the Asymptotic Geometric research, starting from classical issues within the geometry of convex our bodies, to inequalities related to volumes of such our bodies or, extra regularly, log-concave measures, to the learn of sections or projections of convex our bodies. in lots of of the papers likelihood conception performs a huge position; in a few restrict legislation for measures linked to convex our bodies, corresponding to vital restrict Theorems, are derive and in others probabilistic instruments are used greatly. There also are papers on similar topics, together with a survey at the habit of the biggest eigenvalue of random matrices and a few subject matters in quantity conception.
