Generalized Hyper-cylinders: a Mechanism for Modeling and Visualizing N-D Objects

Matthew O. Ward & Zhenyu Guo
The display of surfaces and solids has usually been restricted to the domain of scientific visualization; however, little work has been done on the visualization of surfaces and solids of dimensionality higher than three or four. Indeed, most high-dimensional visualization focuses on the display of data points. However, the ability to effectively model and visualize higher dimensional objects such as clusters and patterns would be quite useful in studying their shapes, relationships, and changes over...
