I work in Department of Fluid
Dynamics in the Institute mentioned in my address. Therefore I am interested
 in the theoretical mechanics. My second interest is COMPUTER GRAPHICS 
	I would like to apply 3DGraphics  packet of Mathematica to 4DGraphics.
My objective is a " realistic description " of four dimensional world  in 
a form of some  science-fiction  for  children  (  with  cars  and  their 
wheels,alpinists with their ropes and knots, painters  with  their  tools 
and paintings ) , and visualization of 4D relations in the applied maths.
	The language of Mathematica would  be  very  useful  to obtain
pictures of 4D objects. Particularly I need some  3D-pictures of 
4D-solids (primitives and their Boolean products)  from  the 
viewpoint of  a  4D-painter,  which  uses  perspective  and  hidden  lines
principles in four dimensions.I  would need the source code of those options.
    Next step is a visualization of the 3D-picture on a 2D-screen 
   - now without any hidden area, but using translucency in colours.
Which Mathematica program would give the effect of TRANSLUCENCY ?
    If my last requests are too advanced , I will be grateful for your
response just to the first one.
                                     Yours sincerely ,  Tadeusz Slupski
