• Here you can download a detailed plan of talks with notes for a proseminar on geometry of curves which I organized for Bachelor students at the University of Hamburg in summer semester 2021. I tried to unify various literature and add interesting examples like the involute gear, south-pointing chariot, tautochrome or the planimeter. The requirement was that the most of the recommended literature is available on Springer Link from the university network.

  • Here you can download my talk on the Theorem of Fáry-Milnor from July 8. Except for presenting the proof from the Bär’s book, I also sketch a proof of the fact that there is no non-trivial smooth knot in dimension other than 3 and draw the sequence of moves to transform the trefoil knot from its torus knot form to the form minimizing the bridge number.
