### ~ A Workshop at The University of Derby ~
### It was with enthusiasm that I attended a workshop at The University of Derby on *Recent Advances in Symbolic Dynamics*, March 2024. This is a highly active area of current mathematical research in which strong progress is being made. The public profile of *The Aperiodic* has surged since the discovery of the Hat in 2023. The photograph shows a physical realisation of the Hat, produced at The Open University. It shows how this single monotile can be used to tile a two dimensional plane aperiodically, then stretched into a third dimension. Physicists, crystallographers and engineers are as interested in the aperiodic as mathematicians, with the result that this workshop would involve a meeting of ideas sourced from a diverse group of participants.
