Geometry & Topology Seminar

The geometry and algebraic integrability of discrete confocal quadrics

Wolfgang Schief (UNSW)

Thursday 25 May 12:00–13:00 in Carslaw 535A.

Please join us for lunch after the talk!

Abstract: Confocal quadrics have fascinated not only mathematicians for centuries due to their beautiful geometric properties and numerous relations and applications to various branches of mathematics. Here, we present a natural discretisation procedure which preserves many of the classical properties, including integrability.
