In spherical coordinates, you have one angle that goes from [itex]0[/itex] to [itex]\pi[/itex] and one that goes from [itex]0[/itex] to [itex]2 \pi[/itex]. I'm having a hard time reasoning out what the angle ranges would be in hyperspherical coordinates, i.e. in more than three dimensions. Wikipedia suggests that you have one angle that ranges to [itex]2 \pi[/itex] and the rest ranges to [itex]\pi[/itex]. Is this correct and if so, is there an intuitive way to see that it is?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
