Title: Stranger Strings


How can we describe all spaces of a given dimension? We'll start by describing 2-dimensional spaces, which look like donuts with any number of holes.  Then we'll learn how to describe 3-dimensional spaces, by using knots to build portals in our familiar 3-dimensional space R^3.
