The squared wheel


The squared wheel is a beautiful example of mathematical thinking: thinking out-of-the-box, generating alternatives and cutting one's way through the jungle. It is also a motivator to think deeply about a problem, even if it seems obvious.

If you have asked yourself the question: "Are there more wheel configurations possible than just the circle and the square?" then, I suppose, you got what it takes. ;-)

Have a look at the Wolfram demo 'Roads and Wheels'.

Mathematics: is it the fabric of MEST?
This is my voyage
My continuous mission
To uncover hidden structures
To create new theorems and proofs
To boldly go where no man has gone before

(Raumpatrouille – Die phantastischen Abenteuer des Raumschiffes Orion, colloquially aka Raumpatrouille Orion was the first German science fiction television series. Its seven episodes were broadcast by ARD beginning September 17, 1966. The series has since acquired cult status in Germany. Broadcast six years before Star Trek first aired in West Germany (in 1972), it became a huge success.)
