And then I felt sorry. I don't want to hurt anybody and especially I don't want to hurt poor Emmy Noether. I thought about it repeatedly and finally I decided that, after all, it was not one hundred per cent my fault. She should have answered: "And a mathematician who can only specialise is like a monkey who can only climb DOWN a tree." In fact, neither the up, nor the down, monkey is a viable creature. A real monkey must find food and escape his enemies and so he must incessantly climb up and…

### Friezes over Z [ √ 2 ] and Z [ √ 3 ]

- Mathematics
- 2021

A frieze on a polygon is a map from the diagonals of the polygon to an integral domain that respects the Ptolemy relation. Motivated by Holm and Jørgensen’s study of friezes from gluing together…

Friezes were introduced by Conway and Coxeter. In what is practically a problem sheet, they imply that there exists a bijection between friezes and triangulated polygons. SL2-tilings with enough ones…

A frieze on a polygon is a map from the diagonals of the polygon to an integral domain which respects the Ptolemy relation. Conway and Coxeter previously studied positive friezes over Z and showed…

### Frieze groups, cylinders, and quotient groups

- MathematicsThe Mathematical Gazette

Let f(n) denote the number of dissections of a regular n-gon into n-2 triangles by n-3 non-intersecting diagonals. It is known that and that 1 for n = 3, 4, . . . , where f(2) = 1 by definition. (For…

Professor Polya uses mathematics to show how hunches and guesses play an important part in even the most rigorously deductive science, explaining how solutions to problems can be guessed at; good guessing is often more important than rigorous deduction in finding correct solutions.
