A Frieze group is a two dimensional line group. In simpler terms, it is a group of symmetries of patterns on a stripe. Symmetric patterns are ever present in the real word and they represent a concept so natural it can be explained to anyone. In fact one of the aims of this video is to show that math is ultimately about the real world and mathematicians are just telling stories about it, albeit in a highly refined and synthetic language.

We also want to thank Matthew Lau for useful ideas and the University of Oxford Mathematical Institute for the use of their camera well as the city of Oxford for being a beautiful location to film.
