Differential Geometry, Topology of Manifolds, Triple Systems and Physics

Differential geometry and topology of manifolds represent one of the currently most active areas in mathematics, honored by a number of Fields Medals in the recent past to mention only the names of Donaldson, Witten, Jones, Kontsevich and Perelman. The recent vitality of these areas is largely due to interactions with theoretical physics that have seen dramatic developments over the last three decades. In the 1970s, Atiyah and Faddeev, among others, pioneered the interaction between classical Yang-Mills gauge theories and integrable field theories with geometry and topology of fiber bundles. … [Read More...]

Topology Optimization and Risk Management

Efficient design is one of the most important objectives in modern engineering. In a multitude of applications this requires the balancing of cost savings and risk management. In the design of load bearing structures it is the goal to minimize material usage and weight while still ensuring design limits and constraints. Less material in key […]


Ocean rogue waves: a mystery unveiled?

Rogue waves are extremely high ocean waves that exceed the significant wave height by more than a factor of 2. Extreme waves are also very rare; less than one in 100,000 waves exceeds the rogue wave criterion. While their existence was long disputed throughout the 1990s, thousands of rogue waves have been recorded on oil […]
