    Designer Magma.

    Friday 28th April, 12-1pm, Carslaw 175.

    In this talk, I'll describe how modular curves, Hecke algebras, modular symbols, and Magma joined forces to solve an important recent problem: T-shirt design! More precisely, I will explain how Magma was used to design the diagram on the T-shirt for the "Modularity of Elliptic Curves" workshop at the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute conference at Berkeley (see the T-shirt).
