Science Pub: From Kepler’s Monsters to Thurston’s Doughnut

September 28 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Tilings, the filling of a plane by regular shapes, are all around us. Brick buildings, bathroom floors, and insect eyes are all made up of tilings. We will explore how to fill a plane with regular polygons, odd shapes, and aperiodic tilings. We will also look at the art, history, and geometry of tilings, from Islamic mosaics to hyperbolic spaces. Join us at the Collider at 5:30 for free beer and a stimulating talk by  UNCA math professor Sam Kaplan, about math and architecture.
