 The product of of two rotations 2006-12-17 From Katie:Is the product of of two rotations over a different center point always a translation?Answered by Walter Whiteley. Rolling Circles 1999-09-12 From Craig Ellis:We have a circle of radius 3. inside the circle and tangent to the circle of radius 3 at one point is a circleof radius 1. The question is if we could roll the smaller circle around the inside of the larger circle how many revolutions would it take to get around to where we started.Answered by Chris Fisher and Walter Whiteley. Shape-preserving transformations 1999-05-04 From J McAndrew:A shape preserves its shape if a rotation, translation or scaling is performed on it. Are these the only continuous transformations which have this property? These transformations if performed on the parts and then summed have the same effect as the transformation being applied to the whole; are these linear transformations? Who, and what area of mathematics has classified all transformations of this type completely?Answered by Chris Fisher.
