This exhibition presents a collection of crochet models demonstrating the mathematical qualities of hyperbolic space. Cornell mathematician Daina Taimina makes physical models of the hyperbolic plane ? a feat many mathematicians had believed was impossible ? using, of all things, crochet.
At a hands-on workshop at the opening visitors can construct their own hyperbolic catalogs.
