In this talk, we will leave the world of natural objects and look at the science of man-made artifacts and systems. Prof. Séquin will introduce the notion of “mathematical seeing” and clarify the concept of “symmetry,” and will discuss regular polyhedra, like the Platonic solids, including a glimpse into the 4th dimension. The presentation will conclude with a description of some abstract geometrical sculptures (some of which can be found on our campus) and which were inspired by mathematical visualization models.
