Author:Barbara Hausmann; The Geometry Center
Description: "Given that humans only visualize three dimensions, how is it possible to visualize four dimensional, or higher, objects? This question is the underlying idea of a short novel written over a hundred years ago by Edwin A. Abbot called Flatland. Flatland is a story about two-dimensional creatures - triangles, squares, circles and other polygons - that live on a plane." An article based on an interview and a seminar given by Barbara Hausmann at the Geometry Center, and first appeared on the Math Forum's geometry.college newsgroup.
