Convex geometry is at once simple and amazingly rich. While the classical results go back many decades, during that previous to this book's publication in 1999, the integral geometry of convex bodies had undergone a dramatic revitalization, brought about by the introduction of methods, results and, most importantly, new viewpoints, from probability theory, harmonic analysis and the geometry of finite-dimensional normed spaces. This book is a collection of research and expository articles on convex geometry and probability, suitable for researchers and graduate students in several branches of mathematics coming under the broad heading of 'Geometric Functional Analysis'. It continues the Israel GAFA Seminar series, which is widely recognized as the most useful research source in the area. The collection reflects the work done at the program in Convex Geometry and Geometric Analysis that took place at MSRI in 1996.
