Title:About the numbers 12 and 24
Seminar:MASS Colloquium
Speaker:Roger Howe, Yale University
Abstract:
The numbers 12 and 24 come up often in contexts that involve symmetry. For example, a cube has 12 edges, and a dodecahedron has 12 faces. This talk will discuss the extent to which various appearances of 12 and 24 should be considered "the same". We will argue that some appearances should definitely be considered the same, and speculate about others.
