Jacob's ladder surface
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
(Redirected from Jacob's ladder (manifold))
In mathematics, Jacob's ladder is a surface with infinite genus and two ends. It was named after Jacob's ladder by Ghys (1995, Théorème A) because the surface can be constructed as the boundary of a ladder that is infinitely long in both directions.
