Description: Mathematical models of quasicrystals, whose discovery in the early 1980's led to a paradigm shift in materials science. Topics include: classical theory of ordered structures (i.e., lattices modeling crystals), Delone subsets and tilings of Euclidean space, aperiodically ordered structures generated by inflation or cut-and-project schemes. Recommended Prerequisite(s): MATH 356. Credit cannot be earned for MATH 471 and MATH 571.
