Wed, 24 Aug 2011 07:04:14 +0000http://lamington.wordpress.com/?p=1212#comment-352I should definitely put a better picture here at some stage. Let me explain in words for now: the r and s axes are “horizontal” in the picture, and R is “vertical”. Now, it turns out that R(r,s)=1 for r+s<1; those values of R should be represented by a "flat" triangle at the front of the figure (which has been omitted). The straight (horizontal) line at the front is r+s=1; note that R(p/q,(q-p)/q) = 1+1/q, so there is a vertical line of height 1/q at each point (p/q,(q-p)/q) (these end at the vertices of the "cubes"). There is an order 3 symmetry in the figure, coming from the order 3 symmetry of F_2 interchanging a,b,AB.
