The aim of the research summer school is to present several different modern perspectives on the rigidity and deformability of optimum point configurations. Three main points of view are presented in the lecture courses: the point of view of material science and elasticity; the point of view of approximation theory; and the point of view of the methods of Viazovska, based on linear programming bounds.

The research school is funded by University College London, London Mathematical Society, Clay Mathematics Institute, and the Heilbronn Institute for Mathematical Research
