Résumé :
With the use of computer graphics and non-technical language, author Jeffrey Weeks explains the idea of topology, an area of mathematics important for theorizing about the shape of the universe. A glimpse of non-Euclidean geometry is provided by showing how a two-dimensional space a "fundamental domain", may be considered to be the surface of a torus, with properties different from those of a different plane.

Résumé :

With the use of computer graphics and non-technical language, author Jeffrey Weeks explains the idea of topology, an area of mathematics important for theorizing about the shape of the universe. A glimpse of non-Euclidean geometry is provided by showing how a two-dimensional space a "fundamental domain", may be considered to be the surface of a torus, with properties different from those of a different plane. The analogy is extended by showing a cube as a fundamental domain. Also included is an interview with Jeffrey Weeks.
