The Beauty of SymmetryStreaming Video - 2008
In mathematics, symmetry has more than just a visual or geometric quality. Mathematicians comprehend symmetries as motions-motions whose interactions and overall structure give rise to an important mathematical concept called a "group." This unit explores Group Theory, the mathematical quantification of symmetry, which is key to understanding how to remove structure from (i.e., shuffle) a deck of cards or to fathom structure in a crystal.
