Abstract/Artist's Statement

Adinkras are mathematical objects used to study supersymmetric objects, the two elementary particles called bosons and fermions in quantum mechanics. We can embed graphs on surfaces and study the induced geometry on them. Adinkras in particular can be embedded on Riemann surfaces with well understood structure. We build up the machinery required to embed adinkras into Riemann surfaces, then we use these tools to understand the geometry of specific adinkras after embedding into Riemann surfaces.
