The complicated threedimensional shapes we see in viruses turn out to be best thought of as "shadows" or slices of shapes that, though sixdimensional, are simpler.

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

That's why I've spent so much time ensconced in the sixdimensional realm of "CalabiYau" space, as this geometric construct is called.

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, sixdimensional space so small that we cannot see it nor ever set foot in it?

So they all split, and give a nice pattern in sixdimensional charge space.

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 sixdimensional charge space as the first generation.

Though scientists use computers to visualize what these sixdimensional geometries could look like, no one really knows for sure what shape they take.

To learn how to read telltale signs of the sixdimensional geometry from the cosmic map, they worked backward.

Take the example of several five dimensional theories that actually become sixdimensional at strong coupling, and for which we cannot write a proper Lagrangian because the natural degrees of freedom couple to a twoform potential.

A team of astrophysicists claims to have identified evidence that space is sixdimensional.
