In "week182", back in 2002, I referred to this very nice thesis:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Joris van Hoboken, Platonic solids, binary polyhedral groups, Kleinian

singularities and Lie algebras of type A,D,E, Master's Thesis, University of

Amsterdam, 2002, available at

http://www.science.uva.nl/research/math/Onderwijs/examen/2002/scriptiejoris.ps

Now I'm studying this stuff again. There are cool relations to ALE

spaces and string theory, and lots more.

Alas, I didn't keep a copy! It seems to be gone. James Dolan and

I can't find it using Google or the "wayback" web archive. I can't

locate van Hoboken, either.

Does anyone have a copy, please?

This is another reason people should put their theses on the arXiv!

Universities should also keep electronic copies of theses in some

publicly available electronic form.
