Uncovering Patterns in Complex Geometry with Machine Learning

Supervisor: Edward Hist 
University of London

Dessins d'enfants are mysterious graphs with an enormously broad range of applications, where their simplicity is largely what dominates the elusivity of what they represent.


A dessin is constructed from a set of dots connected by lines, but through abstract mathematical relations they can be related to complex surfaces, groups describing the fundamental nature of rational numbers, and theories of the universe.


The work in this project will analyse hundred of these dessins looking for patterns in their structure using tools from machine learning.
