 Jul 8 comment Subgroups of Sufficiently Large Symmetric Groups / Cayley's Theorem explanation Ah! That's just the sort of intuition I was looking for! Much appreciated! Jul 8 comment Subgroups of Sufficiently Large Symmetric Groups / Cayley's Theorem explanation @lhf: Basically, too much jargon and not enough intuition. I am new to the area of groups so I haven't gotten used to all the jargon. mesel's answer is pretty much exactly what I was looking for.

Nov 22 revised How can the trefoil knot be expressed in polar coordinates? Added title's question to body. Nov 22 comment How can the trefoil knot be expressed in polar coordinates? But the Wolfram|Alpha plots both treat $t$ analogously to $\theta$. In the first, $0 < t < 2\pi$ and in the second $-\pi < t < \pi$. How is $t$ different from $\theta$ in these contexts?

Writing out all 9 cases is not that bad, honestly. Oct 30 comment Why am I getting half the correct answer by using Green's Theorem? That, and I remember it's the Jacobian for that transformation.
