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!
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.
