Distinguished Lecture Series by

In Lecture 1 we will begin by describing the Hot Spots Conjecture of J. Rauch.This question is an essential test of our understanding of the shapes of level sets of thesimplest eigenfunctions. We will then relate our question to a variety of others about levelsets and other kinds of interfaces - free boundaries, minimal surfaces, isoperimetric surfaces - as well as the KLS Hyperplane Conjecture in high dimensional convex analysis.
