The Department of Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer Science is brimming with activity in three vital disciplines: Mathematics; Statistics; and Computer Science. These fields can team up with almost any other discipline or interest---and also align well with many careers. Check us out!

Note the special date and time!!
Spend some time with the images shown, which, according to the usual classification, have exactly the same symmetry type. Something seems different about the right-hand image: Why do the yellow/pink bowties seem to have mirror symmetry, which are not symmetries of the pattern as a whole? Why are they set at such strange angles relative to the orientation of the grid of red dots? These strange features led me to discover new types of symmetry in wallpaper patterns, with unexpected connections to such things as eigenvalues of a Laplacian and the length spectra of orbifolds.
