Great Mathematicians, Great Mathematics

Mobius and his Band by Professor Raymond Flood. Many people have heard of the Mobius band, a one-sided surface, but the work of August Mobius was more far reaching than just inventing a topological curiosity. His work in geometry, celestial mechanics and topology, sometimes called rubber sheet geometry, illuminates the mathematical and astronomical life of the nineteenth century. Mobius' concerns, concepts and the methods he helped to develop played an important part in twentieth century mathematics. (from
