Understanding Networks: The power to predict pandemics, information spread, and quantum gravity

Dr. Krioukov’s lab recently published two papers in the field of network science. These papers show that (1) the geometry of networks can be elucidated by understanding the network’s latent properties and (2) For networks living in latent space, finding their geometry is possible using a previously known standard called Ollivier Curvature.

Mathematics Professor Toledano Laredo Awarded Three-Year NSF Grant

Professor Toledano Laredo was awarded a three-year National Science Foundation grant for his research in Representation Theory (the mathematical study of symmetry) and Mathematical Physics. The project, titled “Exponential periods, bispectrality, and affine quantum groups” will allow Professor Toledano to further his study of the relation between quantum groups, which are deformations of the basic […]
