GeomTop Seminar: "Interplay of Geometry and Thermodynamics in Physics and Biology"

Date: Wednesday, April 3, 2019 13:00 - 14:15
Speaker: Roland Roth (Uni Tübingen)
Location: Mondi Seminar Room 3, Central Building
Series: Mathematics and CS Seminar
Host: Herbert Edelsbrunner
Contact: WAGNER Hubert

Abstract:

In many systems of soft-matter physics or in biology highly confined
liquids are of great importance. In these systems the interaction
between the boundary of the system and the liquid are relevant and
results in an interesting and rich interplay between physics and
geometry.

This talk will first address the question of how thermodynamic
quantities of highly confined fluids depend on the shape of the
confining boundary. The presented connection between geometry and
thermodynamics is based on the Hadwiger theorem from integral
geometry. These ideas will then be applied to problems of
soft and biological matter.
