Surprising geometries and novel materials

From disordered to ordered spatial structures, complex geometries can

define new states of matter, rigorously formulated in mathematics and

experimentally observed in physics. Surprising probabilistic and

geometric phenomena can lead to both fundamental insights and innovative

material designs. By presenting recent examples of intriguing

geometries, this talk spans a bridge from an anomalous suppression of

large-scale density fluctuations to stable matchings and from a hidden

order in tessellations to photonic networks, which shape the flow of light.
