SMRI ’What is ...?’ Seminar: 
’What is ...symmetry breaking in geometry?’ 
Udo Hertrich-Jeromin (Vienna University of Technology) 

Thursday 14th September 
1:00-2:00pm (AEST) 
Carslaw 375 

Abstract: "Symmetry breaking" has been a key notion in physics since well over a
century.  We shall explore the question whether certain phenomena in geometry may be
considered as "symmetry breaking" in geometry in a similar vein, pursuing ideas first
formulated well over a century ago in the "Erlanger programme" of F Klein.  


Please join us after the seminar for SMRI afternoon tea, 2:00-2:45pm every Thursday on
