Abstract:

This document defines a geometric figure which is called an anti-cylinder, like the cylinder, it has a bottom circle gamma function and a topcircle gamma function and all common normals of gamma function and gamma function have the same length c. Figure 2 exhibits a model made by the author of 1 12 feet height. Unlike the two circles of a cylinder the circles gamma function and gamma function are linked, like two consecutive elements in a chain. If made of anodized aluminum tubing and of reasonable height 15 to 20 feet it would make and attractive out-door sculpture, of interest also to nonmathematicians, and also perhaps for childrens playgrounds, the children climbing around the figure.
