Sujet : Weak convergence of random polytopes: the continuous mapping approach

Résumé :

 In my talk I will discuss how the celebrated continuous mapping theorem can be applied to derive weak limit theorems for random polytopes and their various characteristics. A special emphasis will be placed on recent results about weak convergence of random cones and spherical convex hulls obtained in a joint work with Z. Kabluchko (Münster), C. Thäle and D. Temesvari (Bochum).
