# Euclidean sums and Hamiltonian products of circles in the 3-sphere

@article{Lubbes2013EuclideanSA, title={Euclidean sums and Hamiltonian products of circles in the 3-sphere}, author={Niels Lubbes}, journal={arXiv: Algebraic Geometry}, year={2013} }

We classify the singular loci of surfaces in the 3-sphere that are the pointwise Euclidean sum or Hamiltonian product of circles. Such surfaces are the union of circles in at least two ways. As an application we classify surfaces that are covered by both great circles and little circles up to homeomorphism.

It is shown that certain triples of circle families may be arranged as so-called hexagonal webs, and the classical approach to these surfaces based on the spherical model of 3D Mobius geometry is revisited, providing computational tools for the identification ofcircle families on a given cyclide and for the direct design of those.
