As of January 2020, I am back in Paris.

Enseignement 2019-2020

Cours M1 "Analyse Convexe" (janvier-avril 2020)

TD Analyse fonctionnelle (3MA210) (janvier-mai 2020)

Alice and Bob Meet Banach

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

What's Happening (2006, 2007, 2008...2019-20)

In the fall of 2017 I co-organized a trimester on "Analysis In Quantum Information Theory" at the Institut Henri Poincaré in Paris and co-taught a doctoral level course on Geometric Functional Analysis and QIT.

In the fall of 2013 I was in Cambridge, U.K., participating in the programme Mathematical Challenges in Quantum Information at the Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences.

In the spring of 2010 I taught a graduate course (M2 level) "Analyse fonctionnelle et géométrie de la théorie quantique de l'information"

During 2009-10, I co-organized this MFO workshop and this conference

Starting with the fall of 2006, I have been away at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, U.S.A., but I returned periodically, for example...

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.

In Spring-Summer 2006 I was involved in the trimester on Phenomena in High Dimensions at Institut Henri Poincare

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, e.g., Operator Theory, Approximation Theory, Mathematical Physics, Computer Science 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 nice problem that could fit there? Drop me a line at szarek at case dot edu

Here is my CV, selected publications with links to recent preprints.

Other Interests

Other than that, I like travel, sailing (Navigare Necesse Est), 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).
