M305: How To Think About Four Dimensions, and Beyond in Rainstorm Spring 2020 (May. 30 - 31, 2020)
Thinking about four dimensions may sound scary, but it’s actually surprisingly simple. You’re probably used to graphing points using two coordinates, but what happens when those coordinates involve circles instead of number lines? That simple question leads to a surprisingly flexible way to think about spaces our three-dimensional brains can’t imagine. Along the way, we’ll answer some questions. How do mathematicians think about four dimensions? Isn’t the fourth dimension time? If so, how do we distinguish between possible universes? Why do mathematicians keep talking about these things called “manifolds”? Why is tying knots impossible in four dimensions? Why can’t you glue a piece of paper into an origami Klein bottle? Come find out! Using the power of 𝟛 𝔻 𝕘 𝕣 𝕒 𝕡 𝕙 𝕚 𝕔 𝕤, come learn how to think about dimensions beyond our imagination – visually!
