The fourth dimension is a complex concept that deals with abstract reasoning, our sense of perception, and our imagination. This paper gives a brief overview of the background that leads to the study of the fourth dimension and focuses on the specifics of mathematics and visual imaging to illustrate the challenges and benefit of interdisciplinary collaboration to create a sound outcome.
