SUMMARY:Math Colloquium: \"Polyhedra: Plato\, Archimedes\, Euler\"
CLASS:PUBLIC
DESCRIPTION:A polyhedron is a three-dimensional analog of a polygon\, such
as a\ncube\, pyramid or prism. This talk is about two special classes of\n
polyhedra with elegant structures\, and their study over the past 25\ncent
uries. Regular polyhedra were known to Pythagoras and Plato\, and\nsemireg
ular polyhedra were introduced later by Archimedes. We will\npresent all t
hese regular and semiregular polyhedra and discuss their\nhistory. There w
ill be some simple counting arguments to go with the\nmany pretty pictures
\, but otherwise no prior mathematical background\nis required to understa
nd this talk.\n\nRob Benedetto has been a professor of mathematics at Amhe
rst College\nsince 2002. Previously\, he held postdoctoral positions at th
e\nUniversity of Rochester and Boston University. His research is in\nnumb
er theory and dynamical systems.\n\n*The link will be sent to the Math & S
tats listserv on the day of the\nevent. If you are not part of that group
and would like to attend\,\nplease email kglista@amherst.edu and the link
will be sent the day of\nthe event.\n
