Title:Donald Coxeter: tales of mystery and imagination
Seminar:MASS Colloquium
Speaker:Valentin Ovsienko, University of Lyon
Abstract:
Harold Scott MacDonald "Donald" Coxeter was one of the brightest stars of classical geometery and there is no mystery at all in his clearly written books and articles. Yet, his math is full of magic. Among other things, I will talk about a relatively little known notion of "friezes". Invented by Coxeter in 1970, it had to wait intill 21st century to show its real power.
