Victor Buchstaber (Steklov Mathematical Institute and the University of Manchester)
The talk is devoted to classical and recent mathematical results which had drawn attention of physicists and chemists in connection with problems of nanotechnology.
We will formulate combinatorial, geometrical, and topological tasks concerning molecular carbon structures in terms of convex polytopes and polygonal partitions of 2-surfaces.
The talk is based on the results obtained jointly with N. Yu. Erokhovets.
