    We give a short proof of the Gauss-Bonnet theorem for a real oriented Riemannian vector bundle E of even rank over a closed compact orientable manifold M. This theorem reduces to the classical Gauss-Bonnet-Chern theorem in the special case when M is a Riemannian manifold and E is the tangent...

He discusses the coordinate geometry approach in drawing a twelve-sided polygon which can be taught to KS 2/3 level...

    If above each side of a regular polygon with n sides, we construct an isosceles polygon with k-1 equal sides we get an equilateral polygon with N = (k-1)n equal sides and different interior anglessemi regular polygons. Some metrical features and relations relating to the inscribed circle of the...

    This paper extends Common2, the family of objects that implement and are wait-free implementable from 2 consensus objects, in two ways: First, the object is shown to be in the family, refuting a conjecture to the contrary [6]. Second, Common2 is investigated in the unbounded concurrency model,...

    Abstract  Let L(x)=a 1 x 1+a 2 x 2+⋅⋅⋅+a n x n , n≥2, be a linear form with integer coefficients a 1,a 2,…,a n which are not all zero. A basic problem is to determine nonzero integer vectors x such that L(x)=0, and the maximum norm ‖x‖ is...

    The article discusses geometric construction by folding and cutting. The development of deductive arguments to justify a given statement is the focus of approaches in a secondary level geometry course but often, the way of presenting a proof obscures the mathematics being studied. The author...

    There is a well known one-parameter family of left invariant CR structures on SU(2) ≅ S³. We show how purely algebraic methods can be used to explicitly compute the canonical Cartan connections associated to these structures and their curvatures. We also obtain explicit descriptions of...
