Knot theory, the study of closed curves in three dimensions, and their possible deformations without one part cutting through another, is increasingly important in biology, chemistry and physics. Funded by the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions programme, the KNOTDYNAPP project aims to study the time evolution of knots in different dynamical systems. Special focus will be placed on proving the existence of differential equation solutions that contain knots that persist for all time in electromagnetism and quantum mechanics. To address certain mathematical problems in these fields, researchers will borrow techniques from differential geometry and low-dimensional topology.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie grant agreement No. 897784.
