Why 10 dimensions?
This is one of the questions discussed by Michio Kaku in his book Hyperspace, which attempts to translate the mathematics of hyperspace theory into readily understandable language. This article is devoted to the same goal, leaving the details of the mathematics to the hyperspace theory article. Kaku traces the number of dimensions to Srinivasa Ramanujan's modular functions, but this article will start with some fundamentals and work its way into the mathematics.
