Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Staude's thread construction of ellipsoid is revisited from a new view-point concerning the length of geodesic segments. Thanks to the general nature of this view-point, one obtains similar thread construction on other stages, i.e., on "Liouville manifolds".
