Tripods Center Workshop: Structure in the Micro-World

May 28 - 31, 2019

Description of this Workshop:

Geometry and topology play a key role in describing nature at the microscopic scales. Shape determines the function of proteins in biochemistry, macroscopic properties of materials, and even behaviors of organisms. This workshop will bring together researchers interested in using geometric and topological analysis to study the fascinating structures that appear in the micro-world.
