### Kalle Karu proved the nonnegativity of
toric h-vectors for general polytopes.
The seminar (Fall 2003 HU, with David Kazhdan)
Convex polytopes and Toric Varieties
,
was devoted to studying parts of this proof and related issues.

### Spring 2003:

(with Avi Wigderson) Mathematical problems in computer science
### Classes 2006/2007

Fall 2006, Yale University:

Topic in discrete mathematics: Mathematical problems arising from
theoretical computer science.
MW 11:30-12:45, AKW 400.
Fall 2005, Yale University - Topic in discrete mathematics:
