Theory of valuations and integral geometry

Abstract: Valuations are finitely additive measures on convex compact sets. Relatively recently it was realized that a class of smooth valuations have a product structure. We will discuss it in the cases of isometry invariant and unitarily invariant valuations. Then we explain how the theory of valuations can be applied to integral geometry.
