Yet topology, which pieces together the global structure of a space from local snapshots, is exactly what sensor-network engineers need, argues Robert Ghrist, a mathematician at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
"Topology is good for finding hidden features inside a space that you can't see very well, that you don't have all the information about," Ghrist says.

"Getting the information we need is not the problem; sorting it and deciding what is useful without being overwhelmed is the challenge," says Robert Ghrist, associate professor of mathematics at the University of Illinois.But Ghrist and a team of researchers at Illinois and seven other universities, along with the Bell Labs research unit of Lucent Technologies, propose to do just that.
Ghrist, a researcher of topology mathematics at the university's Coordinated Science Laboratory, will co-lead research for Stomp, or the Sensor Topology & Minimal Planning project, which won $8 million in funding from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency on Oct. 5.Topology is the study of abstract spaces.
When asked about the science's possible business applications, Ghrist cites a hypothetical example of detecting holes in the coverage of a cell phone network.Topology mathematics can map the twists and curves of the holes.
Once topology has captured sensor information showing where holes exist, it can map them out in a way that provides the guidance needed to fix them, he says.
