  • The complicated three-dimensional shapes we see in viruses turn out to be best thought of as "shadows" or slices of shapes that, though six-dimensional, are simpler.

    New Angles on Biology

  • Her advance raises the fascinating prospect that a mathematician's study of a six-dimensional figure could have important medical consequences.

  • That's why I've spent so much time ensconced in the six-dimensional realm of "Calabi-Yau" space, as this geometric construct is called.

    Steve Nadis: The Hidden Universe's Geometry

  • What if I told you that everywhere you point -- as well as at every spot you can imagine, be it the tip of your pen, the tip of your index finger, or the outermost tip of Cape Horn -- there is a hidden, six-dimensional space so small that we cannot see it nor ever set foot in it?

  • So they all split, and give a nice pattern in six-dimensional charge space.

    Garrett Lisi on his theory of everything

  • Now we can rotate this set of charges in seven dimensions and consider an odd fact about the matter particles: the second and third generations of matter have exactly the same charges in six-dimensional charge space as the first generation.
