understanding the average height of a unit hyper-semisphere
On a high-dimensional sphere most of the mass is concentrated around the equator, where the height is lowest. That's a heuristic explanation for why the average height goes to zero. |

What's the variance in the Six Degrees model?
This is one classic paper on the search problem: cs.cornell.edu/home/kleinber/swn.pdf ... and in general it's a good entry point into the literature. |

what-if.xkcd.com: stabbing (simply connected) regions on the 2-sphere with few geodesics
