Closed geodesics on doubled polygons

20 Sep 2019  ·  Adelstein Ian, Fong Adam ·

In this paper we study 1/k-geodesics, those closed geodesics that minimize on any subinterval of length $L/k$, where $L$ is the length of the geodesic. We investigate the existence and behavior of these curves on doubled polygons and show that every doubled regular $n$-gon admits a $1/2n$-geodesic... For the doubled regular $p$-gons, with $p$ an odd prime, we conjecture that $k=2p$ is the minimum value for $k$ such that the space admits a $1/k$-geodesic. read more
