One mathematical problem in combinatorical topology: my lecture at the conference Group 32 in Prague

We formulate one mathematical problem, which will be useful in Quantum Gravity problematics. We will call, that a circle with finite length and finite circumference, which could be deformed, is a ring: let’s have a finite collection of N rings, which could not touch. Derive a formula for number of non-homeomorphic structures, which could be constructed from this finite collection of rings; Every two rings could be linked only once, they could not be knotted or twisted. We don’t consider the Brunnian type of ring.

I was studying theoretical physics at the Charles university in Prague. My interest is cosmology, quantum gravity and some areas of mathematical physics. Other my activity is playing the piano. I regularly give concerts. My favourite authors are S. Rachmaninoff, A. Scriabin, J. S. Bach, B. Martinů, J. Brahms and J. Cochran. You could find more information at or
