# Gauss-Bonnet theorem

From KidzSearch, the safe free Wikipedia for kids.

The **Gauss-Bonnet theorem** is a theorem that connects the geometry of a shape with its topology. It is named after the two mathematicians Carl Friedrich Gauß (1777-1855) and Pierre Ossian Bonnet (1812-1872) who both found it, independently of one another. The Curvature of the shape is used, as well as its Euler characteristic.
