Title:Generalizing Gauss's Linking Integral, and a surprising Hopf-like fibration
Seminar:Geometry Luncheon Seminar
Speaker:Haggai Nuchi, U Penn
Abstract:
I will discuss two topics. I'll describe a generalization of Gauss's Linking Integral to three-component links in Euclidean 3-space. I'll also describe a surprising new example of a fibration of S^3 x S^3 by great 3-spheres which is highly symmetric, and yet is not the restriction of a Hopf fibration of the 7-sphere.
