Boy's Surface Vocabulary
- While trying to prove that an immersion (a special representation) of the projective plane did not exist, German mathematician Werner Boy discovered Boy’s Surface in 1901. Boy’s Surface is an immersion of the projective plane in three-dimensional space. This object is a single-sided surface with no edges.
The purpose of this page is to familiarize the reader with essential topology vocabulary in order to better understand Boy's Surface.
