Shapes of Surfaces Yana Mohanty

2
Originator of cut and paste teaching method Bill Thurston Fields Medalist, 1982

3
What is a surface? Roughly: anything that feels like a plane when you focus on a tiny area of it.

4
Our goal: classify all surfaces! Botanist: classifies plantsTopologist: classifies surfaces

5
What is topology? A branch of geometry Ignores differences in shapes caused by stretching and twisting without tearing or gluing. Math joke: – Q: What is a topologist? – A: Someone who cannot distinguish between a doughnut and a coffee cup.

6
Explanation of joke Michael Freedman, Fields Medal (1986) for his work in 4-dimensional topology ?=?=

7
Which surfaces look the same to a topologist? Note: no handles To a topologist, these objects are: torus Punctured torus sphere Punctured torus sphere

8
The punctured torus as viewed by various topologists

10
We can make all these shape ourselves!... topologically speaking What is this?

11
How do we make a two-holed torus? Hint: It’s two regular tori glued together. Find the gluing diagram

12
Pre-operative procedure: making a hole in the torus via its diagram

13
Making a two-holed torus out of 2 one-holed tori 1. Start with 2 one-holed tori: 2. Make holes in the diagrams. 3. Join holes. 3. Stretch it all out.

14
Note the pattern We can make a one-holed torus out of a rectangle. We can make a two-holed torus out of an octagon. Therefore, we can make an n-holed torus out of an 2n-gon. Ex: glue sides to get 6-holed torus We say this is a surface of genus n. n holes

15
What about an n-holed torus with a puncture???? Recall regular torus with holeNow fetch his orange brother Now glue them together Voila! A punctured two-holed torus What can you say about the blue/orange boundary?

16
Orientability Roughly this means that you can define an arrow pointing “OUT” or “IN” throughout the entire surface. Q: Are all tori orientable? A: Yes!

17
Is the Moebius strip orientable?

18
What can we glue to the boundary of the Moebius strip? Another Moebius strip to get a – Klein bottle A disk to get a – Projective plane Sliced up version

19
Are these surfaces orientable??

20
Classification of surfaces theorem Any non-infinite surface MUST be made up of a bunch of “bags” (both varieties may be used) and possibly a bunch of holes. For example:
