Mathematical objects are generally abstract and not very approachable. Illustrations and interactive visualizations help both students and professionals to comprehend mathematical material and to work with it. This approach lends itself particularly well to geometrical objects. An example for this category of mathematical objects are hyperbolic geometric spaces. When Euclid lay down the foundations of mathematics, his formulation of geometry reflected the surrounding space, as humans perceive… Expand

Non-euclidean Virtual Reality II: Explorations of H² ✕ E
TLDR
The goal is to make three-dimensional non-euclidean spaces feel more natural by giving people experiences inside those spaces, including the ability to move through those spaces with their bodies, particularly for users who are not familiar with moving through space using “computer game” controls.

The Fourth Dimension and Non-Euclidean Geometry in Modern Art
In this groundbreaking study, first published in 1983 and unavailable for over a decade, Linda Dalrymple Henderson demonstrates that two concepts of space beyond immediate perception -- the curvedExpand
Understanding Curved Spacetime
According to general relativity (GR), we live in a four-dimensional curved universe. Since the human mind cannot visualize those four dimensions, a popular analogy compares the universe to aExpand
