Title: The isoperimetric inequality for Steiner symmetrization: equality cases and stability

Abstract: We shall present a recent characterization of the equality cases in the isoperimetric inequality for Steiner symmetrization in any codimension. We shall also discuss the stability of such inequality by showing in particular that it holds in the class of convex sets.
