Exploring geometric objects, their topology and deformation: at the heart of mathematics and the language of science


Modern geometry and topology can take many forms, from understanding simple shapes to more abstract manifolds and higher structures.
Beyond their intrinsic beauty, these geometric and topological worlds often become model spaces for other sciences.
At DMATH, we study a plethora of geometric objects and how they deform, including moduli spaces, hyperbolic and Riemannian manifolds, and algebraic curves and varieties.

The following scientists and their groups contribute to the research in this area: Pieter Belmans, Karin Melnick, Sergei Merkulov, Hugo Parlier, Sarah Scherotzke, Jean-Marc Schlenker
