Abstract
<p>The isoperimetric inequality is a fundamental tool in many geometric and analytical issues, beside being the starting point for a great variety of other important inequalities.</p> <p>We shall present some recent results dealing with the quantitative version of this inequality, an old question raised by Bonnesen at the beginning of last century. Applications of the sharp quantitative isoperimetric inequality to other classic inequalities and to eigenvalue problems will be also discussed.</p>
