Topological and Geometric Properties of tightly confined random polygons

Date: 
Thursday 6th December 2012 - 11:10 to 11:30
Venue: 
INI Seminar Room 1
Session Title: 
Knots in mathematics: Tight Knots, etc.
Session Chair: 
Rob Kusner
Abstract: 
Consider equilateral random polygons in a confinement sphere of radius R. In this talk we describe how geometric properties of the random polygons such a curvature or torsion change when the radius of confinement decreases. We also describe how the knot spectrum changes as R decreases.
