Be a Part of Science History

Interested in being a part of science history? Mathematician and researcher Marcus du Sautoy has created a group of symmetries as part of a quest to discover the nature of symmetry in mathematics. What is this group of symmetries called? That's where you come in.

du Sautoy and New Scientist magazine are offering one lucky New Scientist reader the chance to name the group of symmetries. Name it after yourself. Name it after your dog. Whatever you want, if you're the winner. More details are here, but note that that page has a broken link to the actual contest entry page, so use this link instead.
