Shiri Artstein-Avidan -


I am a full professor at the School of Mathematical Science at Tel Aviv University.

My fields of interest include Asymptotic Convex Geometry, also called Asymptotic Geometric Analysis; its links with symplectic geometry, functional analysis, classical convex geometry, probability theory, theoretical computer science, combinatorics and more.


I received my Ph.D. from Tel Aviv University in 2004, my thesis, written under the supervision of Prof. Vitali Milman, was titled Entropy Methods, you can view it here.

Here is my cv in Pdf format.

My publication list (and most online available papers) can be viewed here: papers.

In Pdf format my publication list is here: publist (with slightly different numbering than above, because of some TAU regulations).


A few on-line lectures of mine are available here: Entropy increases at every step, Viterbo's conjecture implies Mahler's, On Weighted covering numbers



Current graduate students:

M.Sc.: Keshet Gutman-Einhorn.

Ph.D.: D. Florentin (jointly with V. Milman).



Past graduate students:

M.Sc.: T. Weisblatt (jointly with V. Milman), Boaz Slomka, O. Raz, D. Florentin (jointly with V. Milman), Yoav Nir (jointly with Y. Ostrover).

Ph.D.: Boaz Slomka.



This fall (2014) I am teaching ODE for math and Introduction to set theory.

Past courses include: Chedva I for math, seminar for MSc, Chedva II and ChedvaIII for mathematics students, the course HILBERT SPACES, also for math students. An undergrad course called convex bodies in high dimensions.
