Hannah Alpert, Zoom: Homology crowding in configuration spaces of disks
Monday, January 11, 2021, 03:00pm - 04:00pm
Configuration spaces of disks in a region of the plane vary according to the radius of the disks, and their topological invariants such as homology also vary. Realizing a given homology class means coordinating the motion of several disks, and if there is not enough space for the disks to move, the homology class vanishes. We explore how clusters of orbiting disks can get too crowded, some topological conjectures that describe this behavior, and some progress toward those conjectures.
