Abstract : The United States Office of Naval Research supported this project for a seven year period beginning October 1, 1984. The ground-breaking nature of the research made the initial decision to fund the project a risky one of any granting agency. The original goal of this Florida State University ONR project was to find and develop new and significant applications of mathematics (particularly topology) to science (particularly biology and chemistry). As the project matured and prospered, new goals were set and reached, including research in neural networks. The project was very successful, and now other agencies (including the National Science Foundation) are supporting the ongoing research begun with ONR support.
