October 25: Math Club Talk - GaYee Park

AWM Member Julie GaYee Park will be giving this week's math club talk! Here is her abstract:

Platonic solids are the three-dimensional analogy of regular n-gons. Unlike in the case of regular polygons, of which there are infinitely many, there are only five of these polyhedrons. In this talk we will talk about a brief history of Platonic solids and some of their interesting properties, including their geometric and group-theoretic structures. Then we will prove that there can be no more than five Platonic solids using two different approaches: geometric properties and combinatorial properties.

Pizza and soda will be provided!

Location: LGRT 1528
