How smooth can Nash–Kuiper embeddings be? Recent progress identifies a strict threshold at \(C^{1,1/2}\)

New popularized and high-level survey on _Quanta_: quantamagazine.org/mathematici

Nash embedding theorem (here, in the form that all 2d surfaces have non-smooth embeddings in 3d preserving distances along surface curves): en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nash_emb

For the notions of fractional smoothness considered here, left unexplained by the _Quanta_ article, see: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/H%C3%B6l
