• The Neuromechanics of Insect Locomotion: How Cockroaches Run Fast and Stably Without (Much) Thought 

      Holmes, Philip (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2013-03-11)
      I will describe several models for running insects, from an energy-conserving biped, through a muscle-actuated hexapod driven by a neural central pattern generator, to a reduced phaseoscillator model that captures the ...

      Penrose, Roger (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2009-03-25)
      Twistor theory is now over 45 years old. In December 1963, I proposed the initial ideas of this scheme, based on complex-number geometry, which presents an alternative perspective to that of standard 4-dimensional space-time, ...
