DESCRIPTION:“Symmetry: A Mathematical Approach Using Group Theory and Linea
r Algebra” by David Reimann Ph. D\, Mathematics and Computer Science Depart
ment\, Albion College\n\nSymmetric patterns are used in many situations to
decorate an object with a repeating motif that is translated\, rotated\, or
reflected without changing size. We will see examples of several symmetry
types and look at these from the vantage point of group theory. In particul
ar\, we will study rosette patterns\, frieze patterns\, wallpaper patterns\
, and patterns on the sphere. We will then see how we can create all these
pattern types with a unified framework based on the vectors and matrices of
linear algebra.\n\nDr. Reimann will be building a Mathematical Art object
between 2pm and 4pm in the VanderWerf Lobby and everyone is invited to stop
by and see this Mathematical Art take shape.
