SUMMARY:Bernd Schulze (Lancaster)
DESCRIPTION:Rigidity and global rigidity of graphs\nRigidity theory is concerned with the rigidity and flexibility analysis of bar-joint frameworks and related constraint systems of geometric objects. This area has a rich history which can be traced back to classical work of Euler\, Cauchy and Maxwell on the rigidity of polyhedra and skeletal frames. Since Lamanâ€™s celebrated result from 1970 (which provided the first combinatorial characterisation of generic rigid bar-joint frameworks in the plane)\, rigidity theory has received steadily increasing attention and it is now a highly diverse and thriving research area with many practical applications. I will give an introduction to rigidity theory\, concentrating on results and problems for bar-joint frameworks\, but also describing how these have been extended to some other types of frameworks. Moreover\, I will summarize some recent progress in the rigidity analysis of symmetric frameworks.
