Protein Moduli Space
[ Abstract ]
Recent joint works with J. E. Andersen and others
provide explicit discrete and continuous models
of protein geometry. These models are inspired
by corresponding constructions in the study of moduli
spaces of flat G-connections on surfaces, in particular,
for G=PSL(2,R) and G=SO(3). These models can be used
for protein classification as well as for folding prediction,
and computer experiments towards these ends will
be discussed.
