Description:
This work represents an attempt at a comparative analysis of the theory of discrete and visually presentable continuous symmetry groups in the plane E2 or in E2\{O}: Symmetry Groups of Rosettes, Friezes and Ornaments (Chapter 2), Similarity Symmetry Groups in E2 (Chapter 3), Conformal Symmetry Groups in E2\{O} (Chapter 4) and ornamental motifs found in ornamental art that satisfy the before mentioned forms of symmetry.
