Abstract
<p>The talk will explain how a geometric principle gave rise to a new variational description of information-theoretic entropy and how this led to the solution of a problem dating back to the 50's: whether the the central limit theorem is driven by an analogue of the second law of thermodynamics.<br /> <br /></p>
