How can we visualise data beyond 3D, what does that even mean, & what does it have to do with physics problems?

Just like a photograph is a 2D projection showing aspects of our 3D world, we can use 1 or 2D projections of high-dimensional distributions to see aspects of our data. By looking at a smoothly interpolated sequence of projections (this is called a tour) we can understand structures beyond 2D & learn about shapes in the high-dimensional space. I will first introduce these concepts & demonstrate them with simple examples, before showing how I have used tour methods in my physics research.

Ursula is an interdisciplinary research fellow at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia. She holds a PhD in particle physics & her current research interests focus on the application of statistical data visualisation methods to problems in physics, & on the development of new tools for the visualisation of high-dimensional data.
