Topology at Duke

Topologists at Duke use geometric, algebraic, and analytic tools to study the topology of:
  • moduli spaces of algebraic curves;
  • 3-manifolds, 4-manifolds, and knots;
  • stratified spaces; and
  • real and complex algebraic varieties.
One of our group also studies set theory and logic. The topologists participate in the geometry/topology seminar.
