Concentration of mass on Convex bodies:
A few results and several open questions

Abstract: We will review several questions related to the concentration of mass on convex bodies such as the Hyperplane Conjecture, the central limit theorem, large deviations and small ball probability estimates and Kannan-Lovasz-Simonovits Conjecture. We will discuss main ideas on some positive results on those questions.
