Symmetry is a fundamental organising principle in mathematics and human endeavour. This project aims to advance our knowledge of zero-dimensional symmetry, a frontier in symmetry research, by developing new theoretical and computational tools.
Specifically, this project aims to advance the understanding of closed vertex-transitive groups acting on trees towards a classification using finite combinatorial structures and an implementation thereof. Potential research directions include the study of k-closed groups acting on trees, the Weiss conjecture, self-similar groups, and the development of computational tools.
