Class Details

Discrete geometry is one of the oldest and most consistently vibrant areas of mathematics, stretching from the Platonic Solids of antiquity to the modern day applications of convex optimization and linear programming. In this course we will learn about polygons and their higher-dimensional cousins, polyhedra and polytopes, and the various ways to describe, compute, and classify such objects. We will learn how these objects and ideas can be applied to other areas, from computation and optimization to studying areas of math like algebraic geometry. Throughout this course we will be engaging with mathematical work and literature from as old as 500 BCE and as recent as “posted to the internet yesterday.”
