What is a Manifold? (6/6)
In posts 13 we were able to reduce all of the geometry of a curve in 3space to an interval along with two or three realvalued functions. We also discussed when two sets of such data give equivalent (overlapping) curves. This … Continue reading
What is a Manifold? (5/6)
In our last post, we invented a new geometry by rescaling the inner product of the usual Euclidean plane. This modification did not change any of the angles in our geometry, in the sense that if two curves intersected in a particular Euclidean … Continue reading

In 1950, a 29yearold PhD candidate at Columbia published a stunning theorem that later won him a Nobel Prize: “There is no such thing as a fair voting system.” Or so the legend goes. Let’s dive into this claim and … Continue reading
