Gurth's Egg Cup TheoremA perfectly spherical egg is resting in a perfectly hemispherical egg cup of the same radius. It's the activity of the intelligence above all that gives charm to existence. #2 20110803 04:24:03
Re: Gurth's Egg Cup TheoremWhat if the egg is exactly turned upside down so that every point which was touching the egg before is not touching it any more? It is necessary to include the upper boundary of the egg cup as part of the egg cup for Gurth's theorem to always hold. #3 20110914 16:11:46
Re: Gurth's Egg Cup Theorem
 Agreed. It's the activity of the intelligence above all that gives charm to existence.
