Dihedral Groups and Automorphisms, Part 2

Welcome back readers! In the last post, Dihedral Groups and Automorphisms, Part 1 we introduced the dihedral group. To briefly recap, the dihedral group $ D_n$ of order $ 2n$ for $ n\geq 3$ is the symmetry group of the regular Euclidean $ n$-gon. Any dihedral group is generated by a reflection and a certain […]

Dihedral Groups and Automorphisms, Part 1

Welcome to the second two-post series on AZC! The evil secret plot of this series is to make group cohomology seem interesting for those who have not seen much group cohomology. To do this, we will dissect the dihedral group, which most math majors have probably seen as undergrads. However, to be thorough, the first […]
