4D Rotation and Visualization
Posted:

Hi im not sure if i posted in the right place, but hear goes.
Im working on a fractle generator, Ive had no problem with 2D, Im now wanting to do 4D, ive found a post on the 4d rotation matrix im going to try out when time comes. I wish to know if the type of rotation for [r,i,j,k] (or even [x,y,z,w]) is the same as with a hypercube. If so i will carry on studdying that. If not can you please point me in the right direction please.
Secondly im not sure how to display. should i take a value of say k (w), with a range v and plot all the points that are within the range of k +/ v and plot there x,y,z or should all ranges for all 4 dimentions be incorperated into one 3D model. If you understand the situation you will understand where im comming from.
Thankyou
