Title: A glimpse into convex geometry


In this talk, we will take a leisure tour in the fascinating world of convex geometry. It begins with two basic examples, cube and sphere, then it touches upon diverse topics such as John's lemma, the Brunn-Minkowski inequality and concentration of measure and finally it reaches the final destination, the proof of Dvoretzky's theorem. In the end, I challenge all of you with interesting open problems.
