Title: The Recent Proof of Two Isoperimetric Conjectures

Abstract:  The least-perimeter way to enclose given volume in Euclidean space is a round sphere. Since their appearance in Perelman's proof of the Poincaré Conjecture, there has been a surge of interest in putting densities on spaces. The related Log-Convex Density Conjecture was proved last year by Gregory Chambers, a graduate student at the University of Toronto. The conjecture for density r^p was apparently proved by a group of undergraduates working with Chambers and me this past summer.
