# “In mathematics, topology (from the Greek τόπος, *place*, and λόγος, *study*) is concerned with the properties of space that are preserved under continuous deformations, such as stretching, crumpling and bending, but not tearing or gluing.”

# This abstract field of math has been put to practice by physicists to detect new phases in matter and opened a huge field of research.

# The topic at the forefront of theoretical physics is my base of inspiration to creating woven garments.

# Strange phenomena in matter’s flatlands

# The Nobel Prize in Physics 2016 is awarded with one half to David J. Thouless, University of Washington, Seattle, and the other half to F. Duncan M. Haldane, Princeton University, and J. Michael Kosterlitz, Brown University, Providence. Their discoveries have brought about breakthroughs in the theoretical understanding of matter’s mysteries and created new perspectives on the development of innovative materials.
