The Octobagel

Pieces of eight, pieces of eight!


The eight pieces of torus form approximate Villarceau circles (related images: Villarceau from the inside - pairs of Villarceau circles). I then have to mention the Hopf fibration, which are the circles you can draw on S3, the 4-dimensional sphere.


Also see the following animations: Bagel in four pieces. Bagel in two pieces.


Greatly inspired from George Hart's bagel. You can download the movie on Vimeo.


Music: Hope, by Kendra Springer.
