Hello all,

first of all, I'm sorry for the stupid question, but it's really

important to me to understand this thing :-)

I'm reading and studying the very nice book of Zwiebak and i'm working

on a quick calc about a plane identification:

(x,y) ~ (x+2piR, y+2piR)

This should identify the entire plane (x,y) with the other planes

(x+2piR, y+2piR) ... (x+4piR,y+4piR), etc.

I have no idea about the geometric view of this object... but I think

it shouldn't be a 3d obj.

Is it correct?

thanks in advance,

Fausto
