Enriched by numerous examples, illustrations, and exercises, with a good bibliography and index
Requires only a basic knowledge of geometry, linear algebra, analysis, topology, and measure theory
Can be used for graduates courses or seminars in convex geometry, geometric and convex combinatorics, and convex analysis and optimization
The first volume appeared 1985 as vol. 267 of the same series.
