Project Summary


An important part of mathematics studies spatial reality using the computational tools of algebra; one particular
approach is known as homotopy theory. Homotopy theory

has increasingly complex interactions with other parts of
mathematics: this project will tame this complexity using the tools of category theory developed in Sydney over the last
forty years.

The laws of nature are often expressed in terms of differential equations which, if 'elliptic', have an 'index' being the
number of solutions minus the number of constraints
imposed. The Atiyah

Singer Index Theorem gives a striking
calculation of this 'index', and this project involves innovative extensions of this theory with novel applications.
