What is ... a regular map?

This page hosts information on Faniry Razafindrazaka's talk "What is ... a regular map?" at the "What is ...?" seminar. The talk will take place on Friday, November 23, 4:00pm at FU Arnimallee 6, SR 031.


The notion of a regular map is everywhere. It sits at the intersection of arithmetic geometry, hyperbolic geometry, topology, and computational group theory. Recently, it is also being used in mathematical visualization. Even people in string theory use the notion in some applications.

In this talk, we use the geometrical definition related to its symmetry group. We will investigate problems that have been solved and those that are still open in the process of visualizing them.
