Abstract

The term figurative refers to any form of mathematical visualization that retains strong references to the geometry found in the real world. This paper explains the figuration process for some basic mathematical functions definable in the n-dimensional complex projective space. In the latter part of this paper, we raise a question that has been neglected thus far: What does the Riemann sphere's axis stand for? We show that the answer can be obtained only by observing from the inside the sphere by setting the viewpoint of the immersive environment to the origin, which is always undefined in projective geometry.We also draw some basic math functions that are familiar to us on the projective plane and observe the invariant properties that exist among the functions, which were thought to be different from one another.
