"'It's not like we're asking them all to learn—5-Space navigational math.' That had been the plague of Miles's last Academy semester."
―Miles describing something that is hard to learn[src]

Five-dimensional space was accessed by wormholes via starships with jumpdrives; this was how spacecraft in the Vorkosigan Saga traveled faster-than-light and between solar systems.

The study of five-space mathematics was crucial to space travel; navigators were identified either as norm-space or five-space for their specialties. It was also very difficult to learn, requiring some ability to "think sideways".
