Hilbert Cube Stereogram by Gene Levine

Stereo 17 December 2015 0 Comments

I was not familiar with a Hilbert cube prior to seeing this new stereogram created by Gene Levine.  It is named after the German mathematician David Hilbert, and even when I read the definition, I am still not exactly sure what it is.  Here is how Wikipedia defines the Hilbert cube:

The Hilbert cube is best defined as the topological product of the intervals [0, 1/n] for n = 1, 2, 3, 4, … That is, it is a cuboid of countably infinite dimension, where the lengths of the edges in each orthogonal direction form the sequence \lbrace 1/n \rbrace_{n\in\mathbb{N}}.

Sounds confusing, doesn’t it?  Stare at this image to see a 3D version of this very complicated concept.
