Through the Looking-glass: a Glimpse into the Geometry and Topology of Materials
3-5 December 2012
Program Organizers: Elisabetta Matsumoto and Christian Santangelo
Geometry and topology govern many of the physical, biological and material properties of everyday objects. Complexity often arises from simple interactions in systems living in nontrivial geometries or topologies. This interdisciplinary workshop aims to unite mathematicians, physicists, biologists and engineers sharing common interest in applied geometry and topology. Our goal is both to further develop the use of geometry to understand materials and introduce topology into the conversation. Topics include topological defects in condensed matter and complex materials, physics on curved surfaces, knots, braids and nets in physics and biology, and persistent homology as a technique to identify topological structure in data.
POSTER SESSION:If you would like to display a poster please email the title of your poster and a brief abstract to firstname.lastname@example.org Posters should be 30"x40" or smaller. (Special sizes can be accommodated if absolutely necessary.)
