An Adventure in the Nth Dimension


Comments


Just a thought that may be naive, but : if there are enough "corners" (approaching infinity) does the superhypercube begin to be smooth, "round" or even Sphere-like? And: can/does this occur at a lower N than infinity?

I am interested in to see the program you used for your calculation.

What an interesting article! Thanks. I think the "zany" attribute is lessened if you take the "unit" n-ball as having radius 1/2. I.e. it fits in a "unit" n-cube. See http://dbarc.net/dcnballs.jpg. Dave
