Möbius Bagel

Filed under: Internet, Math, misc. — Jonathan @ 9:59 am

George Hart is a sculptor, mathematician, and one of the best professors I had while at Stony Brook University. Never failing to amaze me, he has posted on his website step-by-step instructions for how to craft a Möbius strip from a single bagel.

“It is much more fun to put cream cheese on these bagels than on an ordinary bagel. In additional to the intellectual stimulation, you get more cream cheese, because there is slightly more surface area.”

This makes me miss seeing George every Tuesday and Thursday for algorithms!
