Report on 3D models for hyperbolic tessellation (Josh Inoue) and an app game to train your 3D visualization, alas only for iOS <7 Polyshadow (Josh Yaxley)

My work is concentrated around ** polylogarithms ** and variants thereof, in connection with algebraic K-theory, algebraic number theory and arithmetic algebraic geometry. The questions that I am interested in lead to a variety of rather disparate topics, comprising for instance the homology of the general linear group, configuration and moduli spaces, combinatorial Hopf algebras, multiple zeta values or (quasi-)modular forms and in recent years particle physics. A good chunk of my research has a computer-experimental flavour, using mostly the GP/PARI scripting language to try to detect patterns in piles of data, to find hitherto unknown objects or to formulate conjectures.
