## Hyper-PlanesA hyper-plane is a subspace of n-1. A plane passing through the origin is a hyperplane
in R, for example.^{3}## Quadratic SurfacesSurfaces of the form A ## Spheres Cylinders and ConesThe sphere, cylinder, and cone are well-known surfaces with simple parameterizations. ## Cubics and PrismsCubics and prisms are well-known geometric objects with multiple four-sided faces. ## PolyhedraPolyhedra are formed by "gluing" together a bunch of polygons so that their edges touch and the resulting object encloses a region of space. ## Famous SurfacesThese surfaces have been studied by famous mathematicians for their interesting properties and appearances. Many are named for the mathematicians that studied them. See the complete index for examples. |
