18 – 20 July 2022 | Lancaster

The mathematical theory of rigidity and flexibility has a rich history and dates back at least to Euler’s conjecture on the rigidity of polyhedra in 1766 and Maxwell’s studies of mechanical linkages, trusses, and other engineering structures in the 19th century. Mathematically, the field sits at the nexus of combinatorics, geometry and algebra.

The purpose of this Research School on Knowledge Exchange is to introduce talented young scientists to the increasingly active research area of rigidity and flexibility and to enable them to produce excellent mathematical and inter-disciplinary research in this area.
