My professor was proving that the Dodecahedron is isomorphic to ##A_5## and in the process utilized the stabilizer (which one can intuit ) of an edge, vertex or face to determine the conjugacy class (which is hard to intuit) of elements of the same order. This seems like a valuable skill but I couldn't follow his argument. Can anyone explain?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
