DESCRIPTION:In this talk I will present the formalism of so-ca
lled "topological recursion" and demonstrate how i
t can be applied to provide a complete classificat
ion of multi-stranded configurations of biomolecul
es. The "topological recursion" is a beautiful and
rather sophisticated method arising from random m
atrix theory\, which already found many applicatio
ns and is currently under very active study in ran
dom matrix / statistical physics / high energy phy
sics communities. In particular\, I will present h
ow to use this formalism to classify and compute a
ll topologically inequivalent configurations of bi
omolecules\, consisting of arbitrary number of str
ands\, connected by arbitrary number of bonds or b
asepairs. This solution provides a new application
of random matrix theory in the context of biophys
ics. Our solution has also an independent interpre
tation in pure mathematics\, i.e. it provides cert
ain important characteristics of moduli spaces of
Riemann surfaces with boundaries.\n
