Graduate Student Topology Seminar: Ben Coté (UCSB), 'Orbifolds and Symmetry'

Event Date: 

Tuesday, October 9, 2012 - 3:45pm

Event Location: 

  • 4607B South Hall

I will discuss orbifolds and their role in the classification of all euclidean and spherical symmetric patterns. In particular, I will summarize the first section of "The Symmetries of Things" by Conway, Burgiel, and Goodman-Strauss. There will also be hands-on orbifold creating.
