FW’s Notebook #0 – Opening and Big CIRCLE GEODESICS

Putting the iPad to the same good use, but publicly.

Summer is beginning, and my first three years of formal college education has come to an end. During this period, I have perfected the skills of Googling for good questions and solutions on a variety of subjects, *rarely* for homework, and for self-study.

It’s time to contribute too. New physics / maths blog posts in handwritten formats coming weekly. If there’s time to spare LaTeX things are possible as well.

Question #0

Q0. Show that the shortest path between two points on a sphere is the big circle.

 a familiar exercise.
