For the past couple of days I have been encountering the word "Torus" quite often.
- I would like to know what special properties does the Torus possess that it is studied very much in Mathematics.
A recent article on Toral Automorphisms was given out to students by one of our Professors, which i have posted here.
This is one example which illustrates what properties "Torus" possesses. I am looking for more exciting properties of the Torus which makes it ubiquitous in Mathematics. Another question :
- Are Torus and Doughnuts both same? Or is there any topological difference between them.
