Rudy Rucker, of San Jose State University

Who will take you into the realm of
"The Fourth Dmension in Mathematics and Science Fiction"

At San Jose State University

How can we best visualize a fourth dimensional space? From Edwin Abbott's "Flatland" into modern times, people have often used illustrative stories. In this talk we revisit two-dimensional Flatland and discuss some of Professor Rucker's own science fictional extensions of this world. We'll see how the fourth dimension can be used for thinking about time, about the curvature of space, and about the existence of alternative universes.

To learn more about Dr. Rucker's previous adventures visit him in:
