My name is Gil Kalai and I am a mathematician working mainly in the field of Combinatorics. Within combinatorics, I work mainly on geometric combinatorics and the study of convex polytopes and related objects, and on the analysis of Boolean functions and related matters. I am a professor at the Einstein Institute of Mathematics at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and at the Efi Arazy School of Computer Science at IDC, Herzliya. I also have a long-term visiting position at the departments of Computer Science and Mathematics at Yale University, New Haven. My homepage contains more information about my research, teaching, former students and collaborators, and some pictures, none of which is as symmetric as this one:
Gosset polytope– a hand drawing by Peter McMullen of the plane projection of the 8-dimensional 4-simplicial 4-simple Gosset polytope.
More about me and the purpose of this blog can be found in the very first post.
