Today, Charlie wrapped up several loose ends in his lectures, including the connection with the classical Whitney extension theorem, the role of convex bodies and Whitney convexity, and a glimpse as to how one obtains the remarkably fast (almost linear time) algorithms in which one actually computes interpolation of functions from finite amounts of data.

On Thursday, Charlie Fefferman continued his lecture series on interpolation of functions. Here, he stated the main technical theorem about bundles that underlies all the results, answering the “cliffhanger” question from the last lecture, and broadly outlined the proof, except for a major technical wrinkle about “Whitney convexity” which he will discuss on Friday.
