TopMath-Talk with Jannik Steinmeier

Parallelogram Nets and rhombic christmas decoration

15 December 2021 18:00 – 19:30

On Wednesday, 15th December 2021 at 18:00, Jannik Steinmeier from the Research group Geometry and Topology will give a talk on "Parallelogram Nets and rhombic christmas decoration" in a live stream. Everybody is welcome.

The live stream is done via Zoom.

Parallelogram Nets and rhombic christmas decoration

In discrete differential geometry many well-known systems consist of folded parallelograms which are quadrilaterals with the property that opposite edges have equal length. We present the system of parallelogram nets which unifies these systems. It is an integrable system with Lax pair and associated family. We show how it contains the other well-known systems, in particular, K-nets, Hashimoto surfaces and discrete cmc-nets. Also, we construct rhombic cubes of higher dimension from symmetric starting parameters to find star shaped nets that can be used as christmas decoration!

TopMath Talks

As part of the TopMath talks, TopMath students and doctoral students present parts of their research. They provide an understandable insight into their current area of interest, enabling students and staff to broaden their mathematical background knowledge. The talks are open to the public and last about an hour, followed by discussion. You are cordially invited!
