Mobius, August Ferdinand

August Ferdinand Möbius was born on November 17, 1790 in Schulpforta, Electorate of Saxony.

He is best known for his discovery of the Möbius strip, a non-orientable two-dimensional surface with only one side when embedded in three-dimensional Euclidean space. It was independently discovered by Johann Benedict Listing a few months earlier. The Möbius configuration, formed by two mutually inscribed tetrahedra, is also named after him. Möbius was the first to introduce homogeneous coordinates into projective geometry.

August Möbius is known as the author of a large number of first-class works on geometry, especially projective geometry, analysis and number theory.
