I have summarized 2 questions about topology that seems interesting to me, but are quite vague still :(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1) Are there surfaces (parametrized by 2 free variables), that are possible in R^4, but not in R^3 ?

2) Are there differences between the 2 following parametrizations of the 3-sphere :

w=cos(a)sin(b)

x=sin(a)sin(b)

y=cos(c)cos(b)

z=sin(c)cos(b)

w'=cos(a')

x'=sin(a')cos(b')

y'=sin(a')sin(b')cos(c')

z'=sin(a')sin(b')sin(c')

?
