JUNIOR COLLOQUIUM


SPEAKER: Prof. Fernando Schwartz, UTK

TITLE: Topology Backs Alternative Medicine Claim

ABSTRACT: The holistic concept in alternative medical practice upholds that "all of people's needs should be taken into account." In other words, the body is seen as a whole. The holistic point of view can be scientifically validated by determining whether different bodily variables are related to one another. In this talk we provide strong evidence supporting this claim. We show the existence of at least one fully non-linear relationship involving two bodily variables.
