I am indebted to David Laidlaw for an explanation of
HYPERCUBE. The version of the program I shall describe
represents a hypercube by showing only its vertexes and edges. Moreover,
the view the program generates does not necessarily depict a cube inside a
cube; instead the view depends on how
HYPERCUBE is implemented
and on how it is run. Every time the hypercube in the program is rotated
the vertexes swing into new positions and a new, oddly confusing view of
the object results. With continued experimentation, however, the views
begin to make a strange kind of sense, and one feels on the threshold of
something awesomely spacious and inviting.
HYPERCUBE program has been broken down into the following
Mathematics Awareness Month is sponsored each year by the Joint Policy Board for Mathematics to recognize the importance of mathematics through written materials and an accompanying poster that highlight mathematical developments and applications in a particular area.
