, an international collaboration to create a focal point for scientists and engineers interested in saving the planet.
Currently Baez is studying network theory. Many branches of applied mathematics use diagrams to study complex networks made of interacting parts. Electrical circuit diagrams are the most famous example, but similar diagrams appear in chemistry, biology, computer science and many other fields.
"By treating these in a general, unified way, we can take techniques developed in any one of these areas and, with luck, apply it to problems in other areas," Baez explained.
Currently at the Instituto Superior Tecnico in Lisbon, Portugal, Huerta graduated from UCR in 2011 with a Ph.D. in mathematics. Though he studied mathematics, he is deeply interested in physics, deriving inspiration from it. This interest, which began with a popular astronomy book his sister gave him when he was a child, evolved into a fascination with stars, physical laws, and eventually the underlying mathematics and its conceptual interplay.
