Abstract

This project aims at practical representations of 3-dimensional and 4-dimensional spaces as needed in applications. Topology is the mathematical study of the shapes of spaces. Geometry endows spaces with additional structure such as distance, angle and curvature. Special combinatorial structures, such as minimal triangulations, are often closely connected to geometric structures or topological properties. This project aims to construct computable invariants, connectivity results for triangulations, and algorithms to recognise fundamental topological properties and structures such as trisections and bundles.
