Abstract: Suppose an ant is walking on the unit circle following a certain algorithm. We will see how dynamics on metric spaces can be used to show that if certain conditions are satisfied then the ant will eventually fall into a pit dug on the unit circle. We will review all the metric space theory that we need.
