SMRI Seminar: Cooper -- Symmetry, old and new

SMRI Seminar:
’Symmetry, old and new’ 
Daryl Cooper (University of California, Santa Barbara)

Thursday 22nd February 
1:00-2:00pm (AEDT)
Law Annex Lecture Theatre 026 & via Zoom 

Abstract: I will discuss symmetry from a combinatorial perspective. Examples include 
wallpaper groups, 4-valent graphs,  regular languages, molecules,  Penrose tilings, 
and geometric 3-manifolds. It turns out that for each of these classes there is a 
finite universal geometric object that encodes all the possibilities.
