Squaring rectangles for dumbbells
J. W. Cannon, W. J. Floyd, and W. R. Parry
June 17, 2008
The theorem on squaring a rectangle (see Schramm
(Squaring tilings with prescribed combinatorics,
Israel J. Math. 84 (1993), 97--118) and
Cannon-Floyd-Parry (Squaring rectangles: the finite
Riemann mapping theorem)) gives a combinatorial version of
the Riemann mapping theorem. We elucidate by example (the dumbbell)
some of the limitations of rectangle-squaring as an approximation to
the classical Riemamnn mapping.
