Visualization of Algebraic Properties of special HV -structures

Achilles Dramalidis


The paper looks at visualization as it relates to special HV -structures, focusing upon how it can be used to improve the perception and understanding of abstract algebraic concepts. Using position vectors into the plane IR2, abstract algebraic properties of HV -structures are gradually transformed into geometrical shapes.
