Inverted Möbius

Week 3, 1,200-some (nautical) knots from Null island.

Reflection of an inverted Moebius strip on my compass box. Virtual knot such as this one are made possible using parameters of longitude and latitude on a 3D sphere. The Möbius transformation minimize area distortion and is used to converts 3D brain scans in 2D readable maps.

In addition,  in stereovision,  the 3-rung Möbius ladder helps chemists synthesize molecules. Quite an impressive resume for a surface discovered by German mathematician Möbius in the mid 1800s.
