Crooked Houses: Visualizing the Polychora with Hyperbolic Patchwork

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionScientificpeer-review


    This paper presents kinetic models based on the 4-dimensional regular polytopes. The sequential ‘flattening’ is realized through the use of hyperbolic patchwork surfaces, which portray the bitruncated versions of the polychora. As pedagogical tools, these models offer a hands-on experience of 4D geometry.
