Title of the course: Groups and Symmetry
Instructor: Prof. Ayşe Berkman
Dates: 7-13 August 2017
Prerequisites: Familiarity with group theory
Abstract:Main topics of this course are isometries of the plane, frieze groups and wallpaper groups. The plane has 4 types of isometries (translations, rotations, reflections and glide reflections), there are 7 types of frieze groups and 17 types of wallpaper groups. I hope to discuss these three results and their proofs. Experience with group theory will be very useful in the course.
