|Steven H. Cullinane|
|Finite projective geometry explains the surprising symmetry properties of some simple graphic designs -- found, for instance, in quilts. Links are provided for applications to sporadic simple groups (via the "Miracle Octad Generator" of R. T. Curtis), to the connection between Latin-square orthogonality and projective spreads, and to symmetry of Walsh functions. See also Cullinane's notes on how the square and cube illustrate finite geometry: http://finitegeometry.org/|
