The M-ellipsoid, symplectic capacities and volume. (English) Zbl 1138.53060

Summary: In this work we bring together tools and ideology from two different fields, symplectic geometry and asymptotic geometric analysis, to arrive at some new results. Our main result is a dimension-independent bound for the symplectic capacity of a convex body by its volume radius.
