Does

Dabei sollen G1 und G2 einen Winkel einschließen, der zum vollen Winkel 2π in einem irrationalen Verhältnis steht.

mean the following?

Thereby, (lines) G1 and G2 should subtend/intersect in an angle that is an irrational multiple of 2π

The focus of my inquiry is the der zum vollen Winkel 2π in einem irrationalen Verhältnis steht. Does this precisely mean irrational multiple of 2π?

  • I wasn't sure if "in einem irrationalen Verhaeltnis steht" meant more than the individual words did. – Sinister Cutlass Jul 21 '15 at 18:27

Essentially, it does mean exactly this, but it is worded a bit differently: The ratio (Verhältnis) of that angle to the full angle (2π) is supposed to be irrational.

    Oh, excellent. Mathematically, those mean the exact same thing. – Sinister Cutlass Jul 21 '15 at 18:15
