Date/Time:

Location:

Guest Speaker:

Stephen Wilson

Abstract:

Motivated by the study of the five Platonic solids, we trace the geometric ideas of points, lines, polygons, polyhedra and higher-dimensional polytopes, and the parallel combinatorial ideas of abstract polytopes and maniplexes.

Hidden agenda: I want to talk about symmetry as it applies to each of these ideas.
