Definition of hypersphere in US English:



  • A sphere that exhibits more than three dimensions.

    • ‘It fits in with some thoughts I've been having which map our consciousness as a hypersphere in a twisted six dimensional universe.’
    • ‘A similar breakdown for three-dimensional spaces, Thurston realized, would give mathematicians a useful tool for distinguishing hyperspheres from other shapes.’
    • ‘Sasaki has obtained also a result on the structure of a conformally connected space whose group of holonomy fixes a point or a hypersphere.’
    • ‘A 3D crosssection of a hypersphere is simply a sphere.’
    • ‘The first just gives the large dimensionality of hypersphere, the second the flat diffusive landscape.’
