A Liverpool Mathematical Society Event:

LivMS Event:

Decorative art in the Islamic world often takes the form of geometric patterns that exhibit interesting symmetries. The talk will discuss the relationship between art and pure mathematics through the example of Frieze Patterns, essentially one-dimensional periodic patterns whose possible symmetry configurations can be fully understood. The related notions of wallpaper patterns and crystallographic patterns will also be discussed, and there will be lots of pictures.
