How a helix is bigger than a plane (but not as big as a ball), and why it matters.

In harmonic analysis we work to understand signals and operators by breaking them up into simpler pieces. We will discuss several problems for which these pieces live on lower dimensional sets whose curvature makes them seem bigger than they are. Surprising connections to some geometric and physical problems will also be discussed.
