Mathematics Colloquium


Date:  Tuesday, April 21, 2015

Title:  Topology of robot motion planning

Abstract:  Michael Farber defined the topological complexity TC(X) of a topological space X as a number that measures the complexity of the navigation problem in X viewed as the configuration space of a system. We will discuss the problem of computation of TC(X) and the relation of TC to the classical Lusternik-Schnirelmann category.
