Abstract:

Mathematics implicates motions and machines; computations and colorings; the strings and arrows of life. Perhaps the grandest expression of the beauty and power of Mathematics is revealed in the quantification and qualification that which is not there: holes.

Topology --- the mathematics of holes --- will be surveyed with a fresh look at the many ways in which topology is used in data management, networks, and sensing applications.
