Mathematical Bead Weaving

Gwen Fisher*, beAd Infinitum (Other)
Talk Abstract: 
Weaving beads with a needle and thread provides an excellent method for creating aesthetically pleasing mathematical models. Many sorts of mathematical objects can be represented with woven bead work, including those from geometry, tiling theory, algebra (symmetry), and topology. In this talk, I will present numerous examples of beaded objects, as well as the mathematics that inspired their designs.
