The concepts and methods of topology and geometry are an indispensable part
of theoretical physics today. They have led to a deeper understanding of many
crucial aspects in condensed matter physics, cosmology, gravity, and particle
physics. Moreover, several intriguing connections between only apparently disconnected
phenomena have been revealed based on these mathematical tools.
Topological and geometrical considerations will continue to play a central role
in theoretical physics.
Random matrices are widely and successfully used in physics for almost
60-70 years, beginning with the works of Wigner and Dyson. Initially proposed
to describe statistics of excited levels in complex nuclei, the Random
Matrix Theory has grown far beyond nuclear physics, and also far beyond just
level statistics. It is constantly developing into new areas of physics and mathematics,
and now constitutes a part of the general culture and curriculum of a

Filter networks are essential building elements in many areas of RF/microwave engineering. Such networks are used to select/reject or separate/combine signals at different frequencies in a host of RF/microwave systems and equipment. Although the physical realization of filters at RF/microwave frequencies may vary, the circuit network topology is common to all. At microwave frequencies, voltmeters and ammeters for the direct measurement of voltages and currents do not exist.
