Where can I find resources if I am interested in applied topology?
- You may be interested in the Applied Algebraic Topology Research Network. Become a member to receive email invites to the online research seminars. Recorded talks are available at the YouTube Channel. There is also a forum.
- Another source of applied topology news is appliedtopology.org
- Mailing lists with announcements in applied topology include WinCompTop and ALGTOP-L.
