This is a wiki for study of and speculation about higher and lower geometric dimensions. Topics welcome here include the fourth dimension, Flatland, the Planiverse, the work of H.S.M. Coxeter, C.H. Hinton, Rudy Rucker, and so on.

"Glome" is the word for a four-dimensional hypersphere. It comes from the Latin *glomus*, which means "ball". It seems to have been coined by the hyperspatial geometer George Olshevsky, and is gaining almost as much currency as *tesseract*. One reason we used it is that it's reminiscent of Lewis Carroll; another is that it's hard to find a name for a wiki on this topic. "4D Wiki" is taken. "Hyperspace Wiki" is taken. "Dimensions Wiki" is taken, and so on. None of them have anything to do with what we're interested in, of course...

The present logo for this wiki represents a slice of a glome passing through the third dimension, or as you Terrans would call it, a *sphere*. Feel free to propose a better one.
