About what?

It's clear what someone means when E refers to the volume or the area of a potato, but if this same person starts to talk about its length, a sensible doubt about the meaningfulness of this concept arises. In this talk we will see how the length of a potato is a meaningful concept by introducing the so-called intrinsic volumes and reviewing some of their main properties.
