Title: A cubic algorithm for computing the volume of a convex body
Abstract: Last year, Cousins and Vempala gave a cubic algorithm for computing the volume of a well-rounded convex body in the membership oracle model. This talk will give an overview of their algorithm and explain some of the interesting tools that they use.
