Moebius Strip

Moebius Strip

The Moebius strip is a surface with only one side and only one boundary, thus having the mathematical property of being non-orientable. It was discovered independently by the German mathematicians August Ferdinand Möbius and Johann Benedict Listing in 1858.

In cylindrical polar coordinates \(r\), \(\theta\), \(z\), an unbounded version of the Moebius strip can be represented by the equation

\[\log{(r)} \sin{\left(\frac{1}{2}\theta\right)} = z\cos\left(\frac{1}{2}\theta\right)\]

The strip can be fashioned simply using a pair of scissors, a strip of paper, and a piece of tape.
