Mathematicians Discover New Ways to Cut Pizza Shaped Unique

If you get bored cut pizza from the center of the circle to the edge, try the technique of cutting a pizza of this mathematician. Pizza appear attractive with an unusual shape.

Generally, the pizza is cut straight to the midpoint of the circle center. For some people this way is considered less effective. K arena may be people who want more toppings in the middle or just want the edges more.

The problem can be solved by cutting techniques pizza found two mathematicians. Tiling technique called monohedral disc produces 12 slices of pizza identical to 6 pieces are outside the star and 6 pieces again are in the stars, as shown in the following figure.
Joel Haddley and mathematician Stephen Worsley from the University of Liverpool, UK disseminate this pizza cutting techniques to produce more pieces of pizza. Both proved this technique can produce more pieces of pizza odd number.

Pieces of pizza known as 5-gons, 7-gons, to 9-gons. "Mathematically, there is no limit (amount) of any" Haddley said.
Both are also experimenting cut the ends 5-gons pizza to produce odd shaped pieces and many, like the picture shown below. "It was very surprising," comments Haddley.
Like most other mathematical findings, the application of monohedral disc tiling technique has not been too clear. Haddley said, "I do not know if there are applications that can cut a pizza like this."

However Haddley already own practice this theory by cutting the real pizza. The results are very interesting mathematically. You can also produce a beautiful piece of pizza.(odi/adr)
