Applications of Topology and Geometry – 2020 Online School
The School gathered more than three hundred participants from around the world to discuss the applications of geometrical and topological methods in mathematics and computer science.
School’s main goal was to demonstrate how topology and geometry penetrate everywhere from mathematics to art, multidimensional data analysis, and musical harmony. Among the topics were graphs, integer points in polyhedra, symmetries. More philosophical topics like the beauty of mathematical objects were also discussed. Almost every lecture mentioned simplicial complexes – multidimensional sets of graphs.
The participants came from Ukraine, Great Britain, and Germany as well as from Russia. Among them were university students, researchers, and even three high school students. Lecturers from Russia, Japan, China, Serbia, and Great Britain gave presentations.

The lectures of the School are best described as “quality”. The same objects mentioned time and again built up a complete structure of the field. I thank organisers for this experience.

Such an event as this School are splendid. It did not matter to me whether it was online or offline lectures’ content was the king. It was important and useful that I was able to see beautiful and unexpected links somewhere I did not expect to find them – thanks to the knowledge I got in the School.
