Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. A frieze group is a mathematical concept to classify designs on two-dimensional surfaces which are repetitive in one direction, based on the symmetries in the pattern. Such patterns occur frequently in architecture and decorative art. The mathematical study of such patterns reveals that exactly 7 different types of patterns can occur. Frieze groups are related to the more complex wallpaper groups, which classify patterns that are repetitive in two directions. As with wallpaper groups, a frieze group is often visualised by a simple periodic pattern in the category concerned.show more
