Hyperhelices: a classical analog for strings and hidden dimensions
A hyperhelix is a structure consisting of a rod coiled into a helix, coiled into a helix,…, through a finite or even infinite number of orders. An examination of the transverse vibrations of such a structure shows that the macroscopic behavior is accounted for by waves on the rod that are confined to an extremely small range of wave numbers centered about a value equal to the reciprocal of the smallest helical radius involved. All other dynamical aspects of the behavior and their associated...[Show more]
