Extractions: Moebius strip A moebius strip is a one-sided surface that can be constructed by affixing the ends of a rectangular strip after first having given one of the ends a one-half twist. This space exhibits interesting properties, such as having only one side and remaining in one piece when split down the middle. The properties of the strip were discovered independently and almost simultaneously by two German mathematicians, August Ferdinand Moebius and Johann Benedict Listing, in 1858.

http://www.cut-the-knot.com/do_you_know/moebius2.shtml

Extractions: Date: Tue, 21 Oct 1997 17:00:34 +0200 From: To: Alexander Bogomolny Hello Alexander Here is an interesting thing to do with 2 Möbius strips. Firstly, some background : Years ago I saw a problem posed by Martin Gardener. It went something like this : Take two strips of paper, glue them together without twisting them so that you have two cylinder like structures. Now glue the outsides together at a 90 degree angle. Now you cut the strips down the middle. The resulting shape will be a square. (That is if your stips are of equal length.) Now do the same again, but this time twist one strip. In other words one strip becomes a Möbius of "order" 1. What do you get if you cut the strips down the middle? The answer of course is another square. Now to the interesting part: Do the same as above but this time twist both strips. What do you get if you cut the strips down the middle? The answer is not obvious, it depends on the direction of the turns. if both strips are turned in the same direction then you will get a two separate pieces, one of which is completely twisted and the other is a "biangle", if I may call it that!

Extractions: Contact 3Dgate by Dominic Milano Less than a quarter hour after leaving the rental car lot at Los Angeles International Airport, I pull into a tiny industrial complex. No. "Industrial complex" is too grandiose a way to describe the low-profile building situated off a narrow yet busy side street near the Marina Del Rey harbor. The place could be Any Auto Repair Shop, but for the artful logo painted on its double glass door entrance. Like so many structures that house film production companies, this one is cleverly disguised. The logo on the door isn't even the name of the company residing within, all the better to hide it from star-struck autograph hounds with nothing better to do than disrupt folks who are trying to put in a hard day-and-a-half's work. A test render that Coproducer and Director Frank Foster describes as "very rough, but it gives an idea of how well Moebius's drawings translate to 3D."

12. Chess In A Moebius Strip
Chess in a moebius strip. Take the Cylindrical 8 x 14 Variant. Why should theboard be glued so nicely? The moebius strip is a nonoriented surface.
http://www.geocities.com/Area51/Corridor/8611/x_moeb.htm

Extractions: Take the Cylindrical 8 x 14 Variant . Why should the board be glued so nicely? Why not twist it before the glue? The board would still look like the picture below, however, along the 11th/12th (or -3rd/-2nd) junction, there would be a "inversion", so that a11 would join h12, b11 would join g12, and so on: All other rules (castling, en-passant, promotion, etc) apply An interesting aspect of this board is that, while on most standard variants, the King is facing the other King, here, along the 8-9-10-11-12-13-14-15 board, each King is facing the opponent's Queen. The Moebius Strip is a non-oriented surface. While this concept can hardly apply to chess, a minor consequence is that the Bishops don't have a fixed colour: a bishop that starts in a "White" square (say, f1) can change to a "Black" square (f1-a6-b12) A sample game could be: 1- d12 e11 [actually in front of the d12 pawn] 2- c12 [White is playing a Queen's Gambit, while Black is playing a King's Gambit!] 2- ... exc12 3- e12 g11 [defending the c12 pawn] This variant can lead to subvariants, or similar games:

http://www.geocities.com/~mikehartmann/papers/herzogenrath3.html

Extractions: DIGRESSION 2: HOW TO MAKE A MOEBIUS STRIP Take a strip of paper Make sure that it has two sides Take one end of the strip, make a 180 degree twist, and put it to the other end. Tape - or, better, with respect to suture, which is important, as we will see - stitch the two ends together. As a result, you now have a one-sided figure instead of a two- sided figure. Ill 1: The Moebius Strip The Moebius Strip subverts the normal, i.e. Euclidean way of spatial (and, ultimately: temporal) representation, seemingly having two sides, but in fact having only one. At one point the two sides can be clearly distinguished, but when you traverse the strip as a whole, the two sides are experienced as being continuous. This figure is one of the topological figures studied and put to use by Lacan. On the one hand, Lacan employs the Moebius Strip as a model to conceptualize the "return of the repressed," an issue important in Lost Highway as well. On the other hand, it can illustrate the way psychoanalysis conceptualizes certain binary oppositions, such as inside/outside, before/after, signifier/signified etc. - and can, with respect to

Bubble Mix Recipe A Moebius Strip A Moebius Strip is a twisted loop, normally made of paper. Mathematical Idea A twisted loop is very different from a normal loop. Materials Needed Strips of paper, sticky tape, scissors and a pen. Demonstration Take a strip of paper and some sticky tape. Turn the paper into a loop, but before you stick it down, flip one end of the paper over. This should give you a piece of paper with a half-twist in it. This is a Moebius strip. (see image.) The Moebius strip has several strange properties. The Moebius strip has only got one side. If you draw a line down the middle of the strip until you get back to your starting point, you will find that you draw on both sides of the paper. The twist in the paper makes you change sides as you draw around. The Moebius strip used to be common in belt drives (like a car fan belt). With an ordinary belt only the inside of the belt was in contact with the wheels, so it would wear out before the outside did. Since a Moebius strip has only one side, the wear and tear on the belt was spread out more evenly and they would last longer. However, modern belts are made from several layers of different materials, with a definite inside and outside, and do not have a twist.

A virtual reality model (VRML) of the moebius strip with an animated processionof balls moving in an endless loop along this unique onesided surface.
http://www-vrl.umich.edu/project2/moebius/

Extractions: The mathematician A. F. Moebius (1790-1886) discovered this one-sided surface that became known as the Moebius Strip or Moebius Band. The artists M. C. Escher (1898-1972) was intrigued by the strip's puzzling geometry and included a procession of ants crawling along a Moebius Band in his collection of drawings depicting spatial illusions. The Moebius Strip, however, is not an illusion. It can be modeled in 3D and its topological features can be explored using an interactive computer model. Inspired by Escher's work, Bert Schoenwaelder created this unique VRML application with an animated procession of balls during his internship at the University of Michigan Virtual Reality Laboratory. Main Features A simple endless band in the form of belt-shaped loop (below left) has two distinct surfaces and two edges. Moving from one surface to the opposite site requires crossing one of the edges. The Moebius Strip is an endless band that includes a half twist (below right). Amazingly, the band has only one surface and only one edge. Moving along the surface (like Escher's ants) will bring you to the opposite site without crossing the edge.

Extractions: Photo: Manuel Vason A Moebius Strip is a two dimensional surface with only one face. A Moebius Strip represents infinity. When you cut a moebius strip in half, lengthways, you get a double moebius strip. If you cut it again you get a triple strip, and so on into infinity. When you ride a moebius strip, it is like going back to the beginning, in space, on a one-dimensional surface. If you cut it lengthways, then you must continue, and continue, and you will never cross your starting point again. Like life itself, it is a perpetual restart, never from the same point. The sound surrounding the 5 dancers is full. The space is vibrating. Their bodies are lines in space. The movements are continuous and fluid. The tension comes from the density of the movement, from the density of the music. The piece is evolving, in a circular way. Always close to the starting point, always different. The Moebius Strip is a journey that starts long before the spectators enter the auditorium.

Extractions: Allen Murphey, President of Napoleon Industries, one of the country's largest manufacturers of useful household appliances, sits at his desk. It is the largest desk in the largest office of the largest building owned by the company. Allen Murphey is pleased to be at this desk, in this position of enormous power. The fact that he never had to work very hard to get this position, it having been passed on to him by his father, does not bother him. The fact that he does the least work and makes the most money of anyone in the corporation does not bother him. The fact that his father was killed by a faulty electric can opener manufactured by their company does not bother him. What does bother him is a round stain on the varnished walnut surface of his desk. The stain was made by a coffee cup, which was not placed upon a coaster, as it should have been. Allen Murphey thinks, "Perhaps I should get a new desk." Allen Murphey rubs at the stain with his thumb for a span of about thirty seconds, and then looks at his very expensive wristwatch. He must go to a meeting in twenty eight minutes and nineteen seconds. He sets the alarm to remind him when it is time to leave. He calls up The Time, to see if his very expensive wristwatch is correct. It is. Allen Murphey looks at a picture on one of the walls of his very large office. It is a photograph of his father with Scott Carpenter, the astronaut. They were good friends.
