Looks at the construction of points in mathematics, focusing on algebraically characterizing the set of points which may be constructed from conics. Definitions given to make the concept of `constructible from conics' precise; Use of field extensions to characterize the points constructible from conics.

    Chapter 9.2 of the book "Topology and Groupoids" by Ronald Brown is presented. It discusses the concept of the Jordan Curve Theorem which is a classic instance of a result that needs machinery for its proof. It explains the involvement of Phragmen-Brouwer property (PBP) in the fundamental groups...

    We prove that an unbounded L-bilipschitz homogeneous Jordan curve in the plane is of B-bounded turning, where B depends only on L. Using this result, we construct a catalogue of snowflake-type curves that includes all imbounded bilipschitz homogeneous Jordan curves, up to bilipschitz self maps...
