Title: Symmetry and [Inverse Semi]Groups
Abstract: A group is an important mathematical object that captures the idea of symmetry. For example, rotations and reflections of an equilateral triangle can be expressed as a group. But what about the symmetries of something like the Sierpinski Triangle, which is made up of three smaller Sierpinski Triangles? In this talk, I will define what a group is and give some examples of groups. Then we will look at how we can tweak the definition in order to capture these "partial symmetries".

AWM student chapter social
Social gathering hosted by the Association for Women in Mathematics student chapter
Welcome to another semester at UNL!
This semester presents some unique challenges, and a strong social network seems more important than ever. The UNL AWM (Association for Women in Mathematics) chapter invites you to kick off the semester with a friendly online gathering. This will be an opportunity for you to meet fellow math majors, learn about what classes you might be taking together this semester, or discuss common interest within or outside of mathematics. We especially encourage students of all under-represented genders to attend.
