Möbius Shorts


A one-sided surface reminiscent of the Möbius strip, attributed to Gourmalin (Bouvier and George 1979, p. 477; Boas 1995). This surface is topologically equivalent to a Klein bottle with a hole in it, and is topologically distinct from the Möbius Strip (Gramain 1984, Stewart 2000b).
