|Title:||Hard disks in a box: topology and complexity|
|Speaker:||Yu. Baryshnikov, Bell Labs|
|Configuration spaces of hard disks (or balls) in a box support archetypal
dynamical systems of statistical physics. Yet, we still know precious little
about the structure of these space (say are they connected, for low densities?).
This talk will be dealing with their topology.
Joint work with M. Kahle, IAS.|
