Geometric shapes

If you haven’t seen them already, be sure to check out Barret Schloerke’s geometric shapes. He’s an undergrad student who’s been working with us over summer to generate a variety of high-dimensional geometric shapes to explore with GGobi.

The data includes cubes, spheres, simplexes, polyhedra, polytopes, and mobius-like objects, ranging from from 3d
to 10d. For each object Barret has made a data set, image, short movie and the R code necessary to recreate the data.
