Geometry from Chemistry - Bucky Balls and NanotubesIndiana Section of the MAA 2007 Spring Meeting (2007)
Nanotechnology has recently become a very hot topic in science and engineering. There are also some interesting mathematical questions in geometry and group theory that arise when modeling "nano-dots" and "nano-wires". This talk will focus primarily about the geometry behind "single walled carbon nano-tubes" one the most intensely studied areas in nano-technology. The talk should be accessible to students who have studied a year of so of calculus.
