One or more couldn't be resolved in descending dimensions

  1. Jan 25, 2015 #1
    In the process of descending from a higher dimension to a lower one, there must be more than one factor that could not be solved (or descend.)
    My little own experiment.. http://mr-none.meximas.com/public_html/pic/1.JPG
    Steps:
    1, wrap a plastic bag around a basketball.
    2, draw a "triangle" with three 90˚ angles along the basketball(sphere/ 3 dimension)
    3, Cut/tear it.



    Here comes the question, Is my statement true?

    I am sorry, but that sentence makes no sense. What do you mean by "factor" and what does it mean to "solve (or descend)" one? You will have to make your question more clear before anyone here will be able to give you a helpful answer.

    +1 for Nugatory.

    You need to explain 'factor' and 'solve (descend)'. They make no sense.

    You may want to look up terms like "Riemannian manifold" and "submanifold" and "isometric embedding".
