a minicourse with Ingrid Daubechies:
"Polyhedra and their symmetries"

Wednesday, November 15 at 6:30 pm

(in person)

Many people are familiar with the platonic solids: the tetrahedron, the cube, the octahedron, the dodecahedron and the icosahedron.  They have beautiful symmetries, and there are some very interesting relationships among them.  You can make other beautiful polyhedra by cutting corners from the platonic solids.  And some of these can even be found in the design of World Cup soccer balls!
