Pentagramma Mirificum (the miraculous pentagram) is a beautiful geometric construction studied by Napier and Gauss. Its algebraic description yields the simplest instance of cluster transformations, a remarkable family of recurrences which arise in diverse mathematical contexts, from representation theory and enumerative combinatorics to theoretical physics and classical geometry (Euclidean, spherical, or hyperbolic).
