Mobius Strips, Klein Bottles, and Fractals: The Mathematics of Distortion

Explore topology, the mathematical study of twisting, bending, and stretching objects. Learn how industrial design, engineering, and theoretical physics employ applications of Möbius strips. Discover mathematical distortion techniques that work on highly complex systems, such as roving sensor networks for security systems. Examine the continuity between shapes and the ways in which seemingly different objects are topologically the same. Study fractals, knots, and manifolds using concepts of points, lines and curves.
