AlgTop11d: Rational curvature, winding and turning (cont.)

This video introduces an important re-scaling of curvature, using the natural geometric unit rather than radians or degrees. We call this the turn-angle, or tangle, and use it to describe polygons, convex and otherwise. We also introduce winding numbers and the turning number of a planar curve. This is the third video of the 11th lecture in this beginner's course on Algebraic Topology, given by Assoc Prof N J WIldberger at UNSW.
