Watched lectures 15,16 and 17 of Abstract Algebra E-222

My first encounter with the topic of discrete groups of motions. Gross treats the subject very abstract. Have to read this in Artin first and then re-watch the videos or just wait for when the topic comes along during M336. I think that about 50% of M336 is spent on discrete groups and other entirely new stuff for me. M336 won't be as easy as I thought it was going to be. As far as E-222 is concerned, I can continue watching the other lectures since in the next lectures group actions are discussed. And soon after that the Sylow theorems. It will be interesting to see how Gross introduces both topics.

Mathematics: is it the fabric of MEST?
This is my voyage
My continuous mission
To uncover hidden structures
To create new theorems and proofs
To boldly go where no man has gone before

(Raumpatrouille – Die phantastischen Abenteuer des Raumschiffes Orion, colloquially aka Raumpatrouille Orion was the first German science fiction television series. Its seven episodes were broadcast by ARD beginning September 17, 1966. The series has since acquired cult status in Germany. Broadcast six years before Star Trek first aired in West Germany (in 1972), it became a huge success.)
