So, the final spatial dimension equation with above constraints is three, thus our universe space dimension is three.
Written by researchers from the United States and Europe, the paper's opening words are: "Although the question of why our universe has exactly three (large) spatial dimensions is one of the most profound puzzles in cosmology - especially in view of quantum gravity scenarios such as string theory which assume 9 or 10 space dimensions at the fundamental level - it is actually only occasionally addressed in the literature."
The article complements current literature on urban activism by highlighting the relevance of the spatial dimension in the emergence of a new public that opposes dominant institutional and corporate actors.
where d is the number of spatial dimensions (i.e., d = 3 is our real world).
A comprehensive master plan covering spatial dimensions for regional development leveraging the corridor development will be prepared, under the project.
The scene's spatial dimensions are destabilized to the extent that the poster appears a simulacrum of sorts.
The solution borrows an idea from string theory that the event horizon contains a three-dimensional hologram (two spatial dimensions and one time dimension) that perfectly depicts the four-dimensional spacetime inside a black hole (SN: 5/31/14, p.16).
Many of the stories seem to twist together several layers of both temporal and spatial dimensions. The reader is lost and confused, sliding between the surreal and grotesque.
In exploring the complexity of this version of mediation, the authors turn to the philosophies of Henri Bergson and Jacques Derrida, whose ideas provide the scaffolding through which the temporal and spatial dimensions of being and becoming in the techno world are explored.
Though the matrix will heuristically prompt the researcher to check the pertinence of the various spatial dimensions for a particular situation, question, or problem, not all of the spatial dimensions and thus cells need to be equally relevant to the case in hand, thus making some cells empirically redundant.
