• THE UNDERGRADUATE TALKS IN MATHEMATICS
  • Speaker: Jesse Fulton, The University of Newcastle
  • Title: Dynamic Symmetry
  • Location: Room V103, Mathematics Building (Callaghan Campus) The University of Newcastle
  • Time and Date: 12:00 pm, Tue, 13th Oct 2015
  • Abstract:

    A motion which is periodic may be considered symmetric under a transformation in time. A measure of the phase relationship these motions have with respect to a geometric figure which is symmetric under some transformation in space is presented. The implications this has on discretised patterns generated is discussed. The talk focuses on theoretical formalisms, such as those which display the fractal patterns of 'strange attractors', rather than group theory for symmetric transformations.
