Introduction and tutorial to non-euclidean geometry and riemann manifolds – 13th Dec, 2011 Tuesday

What: 
A quick introduction and tutorial to non-euclidean geometry and Riemannian manifold, as implemented with paper and tape, and then a bold adventure into the kind of mind-bending geometry where parallel lines can diverge, angles can sum to more than tau (2*pi), and circumferences can grow exponentially.

Where: VHS
When: 7:30-10:30 pm  13th Dec, 2011 Tuesday

Talk: Wolf Tivy
Bottom line: Steven Smethurst
