Abstract: Quantitative geometric measure theory has played a fundamental role in the development of harmonic analysis, potential theory and partial differential equations on non-smooth domains. In general the tools used in this area differ greatly from those used in geometric measure theory as it appears in the context of geometric analysis. In this course we will discuss how ideas arising when studying perimeter minimization questions yield interesting and powerful results concerning uniform rectifiability of sets. The course will be mostly self-contained.
