  • Location: Hotel Saint-Paul, 29 boulevard Franck Pilatte. 06300 Nice.

Pierre Delplace

Topology is a branch of mathematics that has many applications in wave transport, in particular to explain the conduction properties of certain materials or ocean currents.

This one-day workshop aims to bring together master’s and doctoral students and a few researchers around a cross-disciplinary subject related to the “Wave complexity” thematic season. The students targeted come from training in mathematics, physics and geosciences.

An introductory course on topology and its applications in physics and geophysics will be given in the morning by a renowned specialist in the field, Pierre Delplace from the physics laboratory of ENS Lyon. The afternoon will be dedicated to collaborative workshops where the students will be able to exchange their analyzes on a few selected articles. The objective is to make them aware of the importance of interdisciplinary interactions in scientific research.
