4D film or 4-D film is a marketing term for an entertainment presentation system combining a 3D film with physical effects that occur in the theatre in synchronization with the film. Effects simulated in a 4D film may include rain, mist, bubbles, fog or smoke, wind, temperature changes, strobe lights, scent, vibration and motion. Seats in 4D venues may vibrate or move a few centimeters during the presentations. Other common chair effects include air jets, water sprays, and leg and back ticklers. Auditorium effects may include smoke, rain, lightning, bubbles, and smell.
Because physical effects can be expensive to install, 4D films are most often presented in custom-built theatres at special venues such as theme parks, amusement parks and zoos. However, some movie theatres have the ability to present 4D versions of wide-release 3D films. The films Journey to the Center of the Earth (2008) and Avatar (2009) are among the films that have received a 4D treatment in certain theatres. There are also mobile 4D theaters, which are mounted inside vehicles such as enclosed trailers, buses and trucks.
4D films are distinct from four-dimensional space. Notable historical formats for providing different aspects of a "fourth dimension" to films include Sensurround, and Smell-O-Vision. As of June 2015, about 530 screens worldwide have installed some 4D technology.
I don't believe this question will interest anyone else, but remains worthy of notice because the solution is a formula that depends on the 36th root of a number.

In four spatial dimensions it is possible to have a breaking ocean wave that is horizontally circular. Maybe you could get all the way around it.

Let’s dubiously assume that these 4D atoms would have the same radius as 3D atoms. Let’s further dubiously assume that a 4D HyperEarth has the same number of atoms as 3D Earth. Then the diameter of HyperEarth would be less than a kilometer. Four dimensional Earth is much more compact.

This is probably a stupid question but,
## \frac{d\partial_p}{d\partial_c}=\delta^p_c ##
For the notation of a 4D integral it is ##d^4x=dx^{\nu}##, so if I consider a total derivative:
##\int\limits^{x_f}_{x_i} \partial_{\mu} (\phi) d^4 x = \phi \mid^{x_f}_{x_i} ##
why is there no...
A 4D planet has no axis of rotation. Nothing special about planets, all freely rotating 4D bodies have two perpendicular planes of rigid rotation. (Clifford proved this in the 19th century.)
Now there is nothing stopping us from thinking of planes of rotation here in 3D Universe. It's the...
Hello everyone,
I am struggling to get insight into a certain set in 4D space. Given is a closed path in 4D-space with constant Euclidean norm

Assume a TV screen or a book page represents 2D information viewable within our 3D world. From our 3D world, we see the entirety of the 2d world...all of it.

Q. Calculate the linearised metric of a spherically symmetric body ##\epsilon M## at the origin. The energy momentum tensor is ##T_{ab} = \epsilon M \delta(\mathbf{r}) u_a u_b##. In the harmonic (de Donder) gauge ##\square \bar{h}_{ab} = -16\pi G \epsilon^{-1} T_{ab}## (proved in previous...
Suppose I have two intersecting planes in a four dimensional space. It seems to me that there are two angles between these planes. If the two planes intersect in a line then one of those angles is zero. If the two angles are non-zero then the planes intersect in a point. If one plane is the...
Given the parameters ##n## and ##m##, I'd like to initialize a ##n \times n ## 4D array where each entry is an ##m \times m ## matrix, and where each column of the matrix is an array of type numpy.linspace(0,1,m). Furthermore, I'd only like to have entries on the diagonal and above it, or only...
Hi, so the four-dimensional generalization of
$$\vec{B}=\mu\vec{H}$$
is
$$F_{\lambda \mu}u_{\nu} + F_{\mu \nu}u_{\lambda} + F_{\nu \lambda}u_{\mu} = \mu (H_{\lambda \mu}u_{\nu} + H_{\mu \nu}u_{\lambda} + H_{\nu \lambda}u_{\mu})$$
From these four-tensors and four-vector I should be able to...
Is the intersection of a 4D line segment and a 3D polyhedron in 4D a point in 4D, if they at all intersect? Intuitively, it looks like so. But I am not sure about it and how to prove it.
Can someone simply explain to me what are the time crystals? What are they built from (matter, do they have mass)? I cannot find a clear explanation of them. I just know that ordinary crystals are 3d, time crystals - 4d.
I am uncertain if this belongs in the differential geometry thread because I don't know what area of mathematics my question belongs into begin with, but of the math threads on physics forums, this one seems like the most likely to be relevant.

I'm a beginner in QFT and I'm always hearing people say that QFT is undefined in 3+1 dimensions or that the Hamiltonian cannot be rigorously defined, what do these statements mean exactly? In particular I'd like to know what makes the 3+1D case that much worse than non-relativistic QFTs like the...
Hey,
i can't see actual space in tesseract.
Like in 3 dimensional cube, you have squares as faces and between them there is a space.
But in tesseract where you have 8 cubes as faces, this leaves 0 space for actual space inside, i can see only 8 faces and nothing between them.
I first thought it...
I have just simple Knowledge, but recently a question came To my mind.

Similar, a 4d sphere would Appear To us as 3d sphere Changing...
Is it possible that our 3D universe is just a shadow in 3D space of 4D or higher dimensional reality? And we are limited in our perception of it by our 3-dimensionality. In other words like Flatlanders would just see s square of a cube sitting on the plane or passing through the plane...
I see that this has been discussed before, but the old threads are closed.
As Carl Brans and others note, it seems too big a coincidence to ignore.

Hi all,
Clarification question: I've read that string theory is manifestly Lorentz invariant - however, I'm confused about this being true in 4D spacetime or in the full 10D setting of the theory (well, one version anyway). At some point I'd also read in a paper that 4D Lorentz invariance...
Can many worldlines occur in 4D spacetime where observers in each worldline think they're the "real" worldine? Is there a mechanism preventing many worldlines from occurring in 4D spacetime. Einstein said this in his book Relativity:
Look at this scenario.

I was just thinking about this randomly today. I feel like the answer is that it "does" and it "doesn't." A math teacher I had said that the 4th dimension is perpendicular to everything and anything in the 3rd, so does that mean that it can't be displaced, or is the answer more complicated than...
can string theory reproduce hawking radiation in non-extremel black holes in 4D? i.e physically realistic black holes. do they exactly match hawking's calculations?
what is the interpretation of hawking radiation in string theory?

To me, it would be much easier to see universe as a 4D and us humans just experiencing the dimension of time differently. In my mind i pictured the universe as a complete 4D structure which we humans experience in one...

I've been wondering what spaces with an extra physical dimension would look like. That is, instead of our 3+1D space it would be a 4+1D space.
In general, it can't be done. There is too much information for a human brain to handle. But some special cases can work. The main one I thought of...
A torus can be used to model rotations of a sphere in 4 dimensions. Such rotations have two planes of rotation at right angles to one another. So one rotation plane corresponds to rotation around the major axis of the torus, and the other rotation plane to rotation around the minor axis...
Question outline:
In the case of 5d Kaluza (Klein) GR with NO charge and NO gauge field we expect 5d to reduce to 4d GR exactly. So this should be a very simple useful sanity check.s the side and corner terms of Einstein, Ricci and Energy tensors are zero, then R would be the same in 4d or 5d...
An element of SU(2), such as for example the rotation around the x-axis generated by the first Pauli matrice can be written as

i\sin\frac{x}{2} & \cos\frac{x}{2} \\

does any and all 4-D 5-D AdS spaces always have a 3-d or 4-D (d-1) CFT corresponding ?
or are there 4D and 5D AdS where there is NO corresponding CFT?
i.e is it possible to posit a 4D (5D) space that is AdS that has no 3D (4D) CFT ?
since our universe is 4D, should AdS in 4D be studied with...

Can a 4 spacially dimensional shape exist in our 3 spacially dimensional universe? Could one exist and we just cannot perceive like a 2D animal could think it lives on a flat plane yet it actually lives on a sphere or donut shape? And could our universe be a 4 spacially dimensional shaped?
Let’s imagine a moving point bound to a 2D plane. If we wrap this plane on a sphere within a 3D space the point would now eventually end up at the same position while moving in a seemingly fixed direction (it is actually not fixed in the 3D space). I am now wondering: Can a 3D hyperplane be...

Dear All,
I am trying to calculate the Riemann tensor for a 4D sphere. In D'inverno's book, I have this equation R^{a}_{bcd}=\partial_{c}\Gamma^{a}_{bd}-\partial_{d}\Gamma^{a}_{bc}+\Gamma^{e}_{bd}\Gamma^{a}_{ec}-\Gamma^{e}_{bc}\Gamma^{a}_{ed}
But the exercise asks me to calculate R_{abcd}. Do...
It is too new for me to know for sure but I think it probably is. The action has a new kind of momentum, consisting of tetrahedral volume flowing along an edge-network: a "one dimensional branched manifold" derived from a simplicial decomposition of the original 4d manifold.
