Friday, April 23 – Math and SimCenter Colloquium: The Second Vassiliev measure of polygonal curves in 3-space, given by Philip Smith

SimCenter and Department of Mathematics Colloquium Friday, April 23, 2021 at 2:00 PM Contact Holley-Beeland@utc.edu for Zoom details. The Second Vassiliev measure of polygonal curves in 3-space Philip Smith (Student, Department of Mathematics – the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga) Abstract: Open knots and links are present in many physical systems, such as polymers and biopolymers. These physical filaments can be represented by polygonal chains in 3-space, whose complexity can be studied

Knot polynomials and Vassiliev measures of open and closed curves in 3-space Eleni Panagiotou (Department of Mathematics – The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga) Abstract:Knots and links appear in our everyday life, such as our shoelaces, or polymer melts, proteins and DNA. Measuring the complexity of such knots has been a challenge for
