Symmetry is at the heart of all physics. Predicting
the behavior of a material by studying underlying sym-
metries is one of the oldest and most powerful theoreti-
cal techniques, with quite impressive consequences: the
symmetry of time invariance gives rise to energy conser-
vation while rotational symmetry underlies the conser-
vation of angular momentum. What then if symmetry
