# Mathematical Knots

A A SYMMETRY A DEFINITION: An object is symmetric, if there exists a transformation ( mirroring, rotation, translation, ) that maps the object back onto itself. Sometimes small details have to be overlooked in order to see the overall symmetry. First we focus on just 2-dimensional images and shapes: MIRROR-SYMMETRY (M) CYCLIC SYMMETRY (Cn) BOTH: DIHEDRAL (Dn)

There are 7 types of infinitely long linear friezes They are characterized by the presence or absence of these symmetry elements: Conway Notation: FUNDAMENTAL DOMAIN nn GLIDE - AXIS n HOR. MIRROR n*
