Perspective plane

Definitions

  • Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary
    • Perspective plane See Perspective.
    • Perspective plane the plane or surface on which the objects are delineated, or the picture drawn; the plane of projection; -- distinguished from the ground plane, which is that on which the objects are represented as standing. When this plane is oblique to the principal face of the object, the perspective is called oblique perspective; when parallel to that face, parallel perspective.

Chambers's Twentieth Century Dictionary
    • Perspective plane the surface on which the picture of the objects to be represented in perspective is drawn

In science:

Side cut view (top) and Cut view in perspective (bottom) of the RICH counter showing the radiator plane at the top separated from the photodetector plane by the (photon) drift space (ring expansion gap).
The RICH counter of the AMS experiment
However, we know now that this this idea came from the limited perspective of spacecraft that remained in or near the ecliptic plane; it gradually became apparent that the fast wind is indeed the more “ambient” steady state (e.g., Feldman et al. 1976; Axford 1977).
Coronal Heating versus Solar Wind Acceleration
The paper also deals with the problem of maintaining connectivity of mobile vertices communicating by radio, but from an orthogonal perspective to the one in the present paper - it describes a kinetic data structure to maintain the connected components of the union of unit-radius disks moving in the plane.
Dynamic Random Geometric Graphs
From a graph drawing perspective ( see for a survey of graph drawing), the traditional questions ask whether a graph can be embedded in the plane such that some criterion is satisfied, e.g. that the area of the resulting embedding, the number of edge crossings or the number of edge bends is minimized.

From the five dimensional perspective one can now perform a complex Lorentz boost in the (t, x5 ) plane mapping (t, x5 ) to (ix5 , it).
