Highland Park, Illinois

Highland Park is a suburban city in Lake County, United States, about 25 miles north of downtown Chicago. As of the 2018 population estimate, the population was 29,622. Highland Park is one of several municipalities located on the North Shore of the Chicago metropolitan area. In 1867, ten men purchased Highland Park for $39,198.70. They were the original stockholders of the Highland Park Building Company. Following construction of the Chicago and Milwaukee Railroad, a depot was established at Highland Park and a plat, extending south to Central Avenue, was laid out in 1856. Highland Park was established as a city on March 11, 1869, with a population of 500, evolved from two settlements—St. John and Port Clinton. Highland Park was named from its parklike setting at a lofty elevation relative to the lake, was given its name from Walter S. Gurnee; the town annexed the village of Ravinia in 1899. Highland Park has several attractions including a vibrant downtown shopping district and the Ravinia Festival.

Ravinia Festival is an open-air pavilion seating 3,200, which hosts classical and jazz concerts in the summers. It has been the summer home of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra since 1936. Concert-goers can purchase seats in tickets to sit on the lawn. Many visitors arrive picnic on the lawn before and during concerts; the festival is located in Ravinia District an artists' colony, which still retains much of its early character and architecture. Highland Park has several landmark structures listed in the National Register of Historic Places, notably the Willits House by Frank Lloyd Wright. In addition to several houses designed by Wright, the National Register lists homes designed by prominent architects including John S. Van Bergen, Howard Van Doren Shaw, Robert E. Seyfarth, David Adler. Landscape architect Jens Jensen lived in Highland Park and designed a number of projects in the community that are listed on the register. There are three public beaches in Highland Park: Rosewood Beach, Moraine Beach and Park Avenue Beach.

Clifford parallel

In elliptic geometry, two lines are Clifford parallel or paratactic lines if the perpendicular distance between them is constant from point to point. The concept was first studied by William Kingdon Clifford in elliptic space and appears only in spaces of at least three dimensions. Since parallel lines have the property of equidistance, the term "parallel" was appropriated from Euclidean geometry, although the "lines" of elliptic geometry are geodesic curves and, unlike the lines of Euclidean geometry, are of finite length; the algebra of quaternions provides a descriptive geometry of elliptic space in which Clifford parallelism is made explicit. The lines on 1 in elliptic space are described by versors with a fixed axis r: For an arbitrary point u in elliptic space, two Clifford parallels to this line pass through u; the right Clifford parallel is, the left Clifford parallel is. Rotating a line about another, to which it is Clifford parallel, creates a Clifford surface; the Clifford parallels through points on the surface.

A Clifford surface is thus a ruled surface since every point is on two lines, each contained in the surface. Given two square roots of minus one in the quaternions, written r and s, the Clifford surface through them is given by. Clifford parallels were first described in 1873 by the English mathematician William Kingdon Clifford. In 1900 Guido Fubini wrote his doctoral thesis on Clifford's parallelism in elliptic spaces. In 1931 Heinz Hopf used. In 2016 Hans Havlicek showed that there is a one-to-one correspondence between Clifford parallelisms and planes external to the Klein quadric. Clifford torus Laptev, B.
