An object in four dimensions

Was reading about solving equations in
n dimensions and how they are rendered.

Found an interesting image of a rotating
tesseract here

Fonts Not Embedded

To create a camera ready version
compatible with the IEEE/ACM
standards, do not use the
hyperref and the url packages
in the latex source.

To embed the fonts after the pdf
is created, open the pdf file with
ghostview. Go to the file menu and select
convert. Set device as pdfwrite with a
resolution of 600 and all pages selected.
After clicking the properties button
select the compatibility level of 1.3,
pdfsettings as /prepress, embedd all fonts
as true and subset fonts as true. Then
save the pdf with a different file name.

This should work fine.
