Our main focus are mathematical and physical models of shape evolution with emphasis on geophysical and planetological applications, such as sand grains, pebbles, ventifacts, rock profiles, asteroids.
Our research group operates at the Budapest University of Technology and Economics and it is supported on a 5 year (2017-2022), renewable special grant from the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. Our goal is to collect, develop and apply existing mathematical models and test the models versus existing and self-produced experimental and field data. Ultimately we would like to gain insight on geophysical history based on current size and shape measurements.
The paper titled Plato’s cube and the natural geometry of fragmentation (G. Domokos, D.J. Jerolmack, F. Kun, J. Török) was published in PNAS. The article is followed by increased media attention.
The paper titled Balancing polyhedra (G. Domokos, F. Kovács, Z. Lángi, K. Regős and P.T. Varga) was accepted for publication in Ars Mathematica Contemporanea.
Congratulations to Zsolt Lángi, who is listed in the New National Excellence Program (ÚNKP) success stories!
Krisztina Regős is a finalist in the FameLab Hungary 2020. The national finals will be in the Fall of 2020.
