Brief description The focus of this project is on graphs, which are mathematical descriptions of networks, and it seeks to answer fundamental questions about how many symmetries such objects possess. This question is important since the symmetries of an object reveal its deepest structure. One of the main aims of this project it to convert local information into global properties of graphs. To make progress on the investigation of graphs, this project aims to classify the symmetry groups which arise from the local viewpoint. This classification is expected to provide new insight into symmetrical structures and have further impact on other areas of group theory.
