Robert Nicolaides - Abstract Regular Polytopes
|Dates:||8 November 2019|
|Times:||15:00 - 16:00|
|What is it:||Seminar|
|Organiser:||Department of Mathematics|
|Who is it for:||Current University students|
This week's pure postgrad seminar will be given by Robert Nicolaides at 3pm in Frank Adams 1.
Abstract Regular Polytopes (ARPs) are abstract shapes inspired by the celebrated Platonic Solids. We will gently introduce the concept of an ARP before giving the precise definition. Then we will present the correspondence between ARPs and groups of a certain form. Along the way we'll try visualise examples to give an intuitive understanding. Finally, if time permits, we'll take a look at landscape of the existence of these shapes and present some of the exciting results going on in this area.
