  • The circle space of a spherical circle plane 

    Löwen, R.; Steinke, G. F. (BELGIAN MATHEMATICAL SOC TRIOMPHE, 2014)
    We show that the circle space of a spherical circle plane is a punctured projective 3-space. The main ingredient is a partial solution of the problem of Apollonius on common touching circles.
  • Facile fabrication of complex networks of memristive devices
