Math Student Colloquium: Anton Zavorotny, Mathematics Senior

"Platonic Hypersolids" - 

While there are five Platonic Solids, or regular three-dimensional polytopes, there are six regular four-dimensional polytopes. Seeing in four dimensions isn't the simplest task, and proving properties about arbitrary dimensional polytopes is perhaps even harder. In this talk we will define what makes polytopes regular, come up with a system to give us all of the possible regular polytopes, and then use multi-dimensional trig to find a necessary condition for a regular polytope to be realizable.
