Workshop 6 "Structures — Polyhedra, Meshes, Platforms"

within the Special Semester on Rigidity and Flexibility

Workshop 6

May 13–17, 2024

Structures — Polyhedra, Meshes, Platforms

  • Johanna Frischauf (University of Innsbruck)
  • Johannes Siegele (RICAM)

Flexible structures appear in mechanical engineering, biology (e.g. the human skeleton), chemistry (on microscopic scale). Their geometric properties have been studied in geometry since the 19th century. Questions about symmetry, paradoxical mobility, and topology of configuration spaces are still in the focus of modern algebra, geometry, and topology.
