Analytic and topological aspects of Menger curvatures for curves and submanifolds

Wednesday 5th December 2012 - 09:00 to 09:40
INI Seminar Room 1
Session Title: 
Knots in mathematics: Knot energies
Session Chair: 
Jason Cantarella
We discuss various types of geometric curvature energies based on the concept of Menger curvature. These energies exhibit self-avoidance and regularizing effects on curves and submanifolds, and they control their topology.
