Description: Title: Waists of balls in different spaces
Speaker: Arseniy Akopyan [MCCME]

Abstract: Gromov and Memarian (2003-2011) have established the waist inequality asserting that for any continuous map f from the sphere $S^n \to R^{n-k}$ there exists a fiber $f^{-1}(y)$ such that every its t-neighborhood has measure at least the measure of the t-neighborhood of an equatorial subsphere $S^k$ of $S^n$. Going to the limit we may say that the (n-k)-volume of the fiber $f^{-1}(y)$ is at least that of the standard sphere $S^k$. We extend this limit statement to the exact bounds for balls in spaces of constant curvature, tori, parallelepipeds, projective spaces and other metric spaces. By the volume of preimages for a non-regular map f we mean its lower Minkowski content, some new properties of which will be also presented in the talk.
