Here is some interesting history behind a few “good-looking” curves and how they got their names! Cissoid Equation: The Cissoid is named so because of its resemblance to the shape of a Cissus plant. The Cissoid is a curve, defined as the set of points P that is the same distance from a fixed point…

“…and they couldn’t send the satellite up! Those big solar panels! Won’t fit in the rocket! If, in any way, they can pack it in the rocket – like we lazy souls pack our dresses when we go for a trip – and pull it out in the Outerspace and iron it back to the…

## Analysis/Topology: Bounded and Totally Bounded Sets

Definitions Bounded set: Let <M,ρ> be a metric space. We say that the subset A of M is bounded if there exists a positive number L such that ρ(x,y)≤L (x,y∈A) (Wikipedia) Diameter of a set: If A is bounded, we define diameter of A (denoted by diam A) as diam A= ρ(x,y). If A is not…
