Midterm Colloquium by Jerome Barkley

Titel: Shortest topological loop length on random genus one manifolds

Abstract: In this midterm colloquium, I will discuss some results from Monte-Carlo simulation showing that the shortest loop length on genus one manifolds is proportional to A^¼, where A is the area of the manifold. This contradicts a previous hypothesis related to genus zero manifolds with holes.
