The Rigid Body

Amna Shaddad

Frank Adams 1,

I will talk about the water/'ozone' molecule, the double spherical pendulum, a book with an elastic band across it and maybe also a cat. I hope to be able to cover all of these and their range of motion in some geometric detail.
 
This should be accessible to all as I simply explain how the rotation group, the Euclidean group of rotation and translations, hopf bifurcation and holonomy (you do not need to look up what these are beforehand - I will go through them in a lot of detail) can be used to put to paper the objects I listed above.
