### Using symmetries of a r.v.'s distribution to boost samples and possibly do variance reduction

Suppose, for example, you are simulating samples from a (multivariate) Gaussian with mean zero and covariance $\Gamma=BB^T$. If you had generated a sample $x$, you could generate more (dependent) ...

### Mathematics of quasicrystals

I want to study quasicrystals from mathematical point of view, but I'm having hard time finding materials about it. If you could suggest me some books, articles or papers, I would be glad.

### Highly symmetric 6-regular graph with 20 vertices

I'm interested in (node/edge-)symmetric 6-regular graphs on 20 vertices and 60 edges, especially ones with a A5/icosahedral/dodecahedral symmetry group and especially their chromatic number. So far I ...

### Does graph asymmetry imply all eigenvalues of the graph Laplacian are simple?

It is well known that 1) if there exists a non-trivial automorphism of a graph $G$ with corresponding permutation matrix $P$ then if $(v,\lambda)$ is an eigenvector-eigenvalue pair of the graph ...

### Name this periodic tiling

Hello MO, I've been working on a problem I'm working on in ergodic theory (finding Alpern lemmas for measure-preserving $\mathbb R^d$ actions) and have found some neat tilings, that I presume were ...

### The Symmetry of a Soccer Ball

Let $P$ be a polyhedron which satisfies the following three conditions: $P$ is built out of regular hexagons and regular pentagons. Three faces meet at each vertex. $P$ is topologically a sphere. ...
In classical mechanics: If a Lagrangian L is preserved by an infinitesimal change in the state space variables qi -> qi + εKi(q) leads to only second order change in the Lagrangian:  0 = \...
