How to See Objects in Four Dimensions

Synopsis
Recording of a lecture given by Professor S A Robertson as part of the London Mathematical Society’s Popular Lecture Series. Our experience of the physical world through sight, touch and hearing is the raw material from which classical Euclidean plane and solid geometry is derived. This lecture demonstrates that geometrical structures in four-dimensional space can also be understood in visual terms.
