Prof Joel Hass (University of California, Davis) is presenting a public lecture on "Comparing shapes of genus zero". This talk is aimed at a general scientific audience. All are welcome to attend.

Abstract: Almost everything we encounter in our 3-dimensional world is a surface - the outside of a solid object. Moreover there is an explosive increase in the availability of digitized representations of surfaces in 3D. Comparing the shapes of surfaces is, not surprisingly, a fundamental problem in both theoretical and applied mathematics. Facial recognition, drug design and much of radiology, for example, are concerned with comparing and aligning surfaces. Deep mathematical results are now being used to study objects such as bones, brain cortices, proteins and biomolecules by studying their surface geometry. This talk will discuss recent joint work with Patrice Koehl that introduces a new way to align and compare surfaces, and how well it performs relative to other methods and to human experts.
