Title:Hard disks in a box: topology and complexity
Seminar:MASS Colloquium
Speaker:Yu. Baryshnikov, Bell Labs
Abstract:
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.
