ICERM "Topology in Motion" - Event Website

This thematic semester aims at exploring those areas of topology where the research challenges stem from scientific and engineering problem and computer experiments rather than the intrinsic development of the topology proper. In this context, topology is a toolbox of mathematical results and constructions which impacts and inspires developments in other areas. Born as a supporting discipline, aimed at creating a foundation of intuitive notions immensely useful in differential equations and complex analysis, algebraic topology remains indispensable in many disciplines. ICERM's goal is to concentrate on relatively recent areas of research enabled, in particular, by the computational revolution in mathematical discovery.

Alumni - BIDS Data Science Fellow

Dmitriy Morozov is a research scientist in the Computational Research Division of the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL). After completing his PhD in computer science at Duke University, he was a postdoctoral scholar in the Departments of Computer Science and Mathematics at Stanford University and later LBNL. Dmitriy’s work is concerned with geometric and topological data analysis, especially with the development of efficient algorithms and software in this field.
