SUMMARY:Pi Mu Epsilon Undergraduate Talk - Thomas Mark\, University of Virginia
DESCRIPTION: \nPolynomial Convexity and a Nonlinear Triangle Inequality \nAbstract: A subset of the plane is called convex if the line segment joining any two of its\npoints also lies in the set. The “convex hull” of a set is the smallest convex set\ncontaining the given one. I’ll describe how convexity can be interpreted in terms of\nlinear polynomials\, and how this leads to generalizations in terms of higher-degree\npolynomials. Thinking about what it means for points to lie in the higher-degree\nconvex hull of a given set leads to an interesting geometric theorem about\ntriangles.\nThis \n \n
