Math Colloquium: Knitting Scaffolds and Other Tricks with Minimal(ish) Surfaces

Wednesday, April 19, 2023

3:00 PM-4:00 PM

Abstract: Triply periodic minimal surfaces can be decomposed into helicoid-like pieces, allowing for large, collective deformations to be studied. I will present some exact and approximate decompositions and describe work with the Pennsylvania Fabric Discovery Center that utilizes them to predict and understand the behavior of knitted fabrics.
