Two space is special as evidenced by the theory of one complex variable and Riemann surfaces.

Three space is special because our physical reality including biology takes place there. In three dimensions mathematical mysteries related to geometry, analysis and mathematical physics are more abundant.

Like 3D fluid motion, non-perturbative quantum field theory and quantum gravity.

Might these mysteries be also studied using a combinatorial understanding of why three space is special for chemistry, biology and physics?

This question will be pursued in the class using notions from combinatorial topology together with the idea that combinatorics used as in coin-flipping guided walks lead naturally into measure theory and probability theory.
