“It's all set in the stars”: adapting and staging Lee Smith's “Intensive Care”†

ABSTRACT This essay describes the analysis, adaptation, and staging processes associated with a production of Lee Smith's short story, “Intensive Care.” Smith's story, animated by a subtextual

Four-Dimensional Ideas

Living in a three-dimensional world, it is quite difficult for us to imagine a fourth geometric dimension, perpendicular to the three we already know. But a 4D geometry does not break any

Physics in higher-dimensional manifolds

In this thesis, we study various aspects of physics in higher-dimensional manifolds involving a single extra dimension. After giving some historical perspective on the motivation for studying


The main aim of this paper is to show how the visualization obtained through the use of sophisticated mathematical tools like the computerized graphics, is an essential element in the teaching of

Sections and Shadows of Four-Dimensional Objects

This work focuses on a synthetic approach to description of the four-dimensional space with the use of descriptive geometry tools and visualize images of an object and its section or shadow at the same time in a double orthogonal projection on two perpendicular three-dimensional spaces.
