[00805] A Topological Model of Textile Structures

  • Session Time & Room : 3E (Aug.23, 17:40-19:20) @E504
  • Type : Contributed Talk
  • Abstract : Textiles are complex entangled structures made of threads embedded in a thickened plane. From nano to macro scale and high functionality to pure esthetic, they have been studied and fabricated for thousands of years in disciplines as diverse as materials science and art. Currently an active research topic in mathematics, we will present a topological model that aims to define, construct and classify specific textile structures from a knot theory viewpoint and highlight some applications.
