"Forbidden Symmetries: the Fractal Beauty of Compound Symmetry Groups"
featuring Bob Hearn
Wednesday, March 8 at 4:00 pm ET
Symmetry is at the heart of much of mathematics, physics, and art. Join Bob Hearn, computer scientist and Gathering 4 Gardner Board Member and Program Chair, in a captivating investigation into what happens when we try to slightly generalize the traditional mathematical notion of geometric symmetry. Amazing new spaces are revealed, featuring a novel family of fractals, quasicrystals, and all manner of delightful structures. There's also a surprising connection to puzzles. Discover what we already know and what remains mysterious in this exciting new world of "compound symmetry."
