NAME

Math::nSphere - calculate volumen and surface of n-spheres

SYNOPSIS

  use Math::nSphere qw(nsphere_surface nshepere_volumen);

  my $sur = nsphere_surface($dim - 1, $radius);
  my $vol = nsphere_volumen($dim - 1, $radius);

DESCRIPTION

This module provides functions to calculate the surface and the volumen of n-spheres of any dimension.

Note that n + 1 equals the space dimension. For instace, a circunference is a 1-sphere and a sphere is a 2-sphere.

$sur = nsphere_surface($n, $r)

Returns the surface of the n-sphere of the given radius (1.0 by default).

$vol = nsphere_volumen($n, $r)

Returns the volumen of the n-sphere of the given radius (1.0 by default).
