# Symmetrized topological complexity of the circle

Thursday, April 6, 2017 -

3:00pm to 4:00pm

We prove that it is impossible to have two continuous rules telling how to move between any two points on the circle in such a way that the path from Q to P is the reverse of the path from P to Q. It is easy to see that this can be done with three such rules.
