Abstract:


    Four-dimensional (4D) space is not intuitive to human mind. Commonly used examples of 4D space, such as the deep sea and the universe, are difficult for many people to feel or image. Research on the visualization of high dimensional polygons [1] helps people become aware of high dimensional spaces and feel their beauty, complexity and variations.
