Navigating by numbers outreach programme

Welcome to the home of the Navigating by numbers outreach programme! The purpose of the programme is to communicate an attractive network of geometric and numeric ideas centred around the Farey graph. This involves Coxeter's frieze patters, SL2-tilings, continued fractions, dessins d'enfants, hyperbolic geometry, and a host of other mathematical concepts.
