[REBOL] [Fwd: Life Streams / Higher Dimensions?]

From: webmaster::windsweptfarm::com at: 20-Mar-2002 6:41

-------- Original Message -------- From: Jim <[webmaster--windsweptfarm--com]> Subject: Life Streams / Higher Dimensions? To: [Al--Bri--xtra--co--nz] Dear Andrew, Funny you should mention this... I was just brainstorming this notion while contemplating my gps location app. Here is an excellent book to stimulate you on the notion of higher dimensions. It is perhaps my favorite geometry book because of its' great catalytic effect when contemplating the notion of mapping "data" to multiple and extended dimensions. Sincerely, Jim [IMG][1]Beyond the Third Dimension Geometry, Computer Graphics, and Higher Dimensions Thomas F. Banchoff[2] Thomas Banchoff[3] has succeeded in producing one of the best popular books on geometry that I have seen...all readers, whether lay or professional mathematician, can expect to learn something new in this book. -Nature In our world of three-dimensional space, how can we even attempt to visualizean object of four, five or six dimensions? Thomas Banchoff shows us how with his insightful text, renowned computer graphics, and superb illustrations that help us visualize dimensions higher than our own. Beyond the Third Dimension expands our visual boundaries as we learn how a dimensioncan represent energy, temperature and numerous other variables, including time. We will see how the concept of dimensions plays a significant, perhaps unexpected role in fields as diverse as medicine and modern art, and also in our everyday lives. --- Links --- 1 2 3 -- Binary/unsupported file stripped by Listar -- -- Type: image/gif -- File: C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\nsmailD0.gif
