In- and Outside the Torus

This image depicts the three-dimensional projection of a torus in four-space. Bands on the torus have been removed to make it possible to "see through" it. Banchoff's description of the torus and the three-sphere provides more information about this image, and includes several MPEG movies of the torus rotating in four dimensions.
