Search results “Product of quaternion”

The most important operations upon vectors include the dot and cross products and are indispensable for doing physics and vector calculus. The dot product gives a quick way to check whether vectors are orthogonal and the cross product calculates a new vector orthogonal to both its inputs. These vector operations were originally derived from the analysis of quaternions and eventually parted ways with quaternions to become our modern vector analysis. Much bickering ensued in the infancy of vector analysis, with the big names including Hamilton, Gibbs, and Heaviside, but we will focus on the math here.
In this video, I will show you how the dot and cross product arise from dissecting the formula for quaternion multiplication and allows us to write quaternion multiplication using dot and cross products. In addition, I will show the converse, how the dot and cross products can be defined using quaternion multiplication.

In this video, we will discover how to rotate any vector through any axis by breaking up a vector into a parallel part and a perpendicular part. Then, we will use vector analysis (cross products and dot products) to derive the Rodrigues rotation formula and finish with a quaternion point of view. Using quaternions allows us to write a very compact formula which will be familiar to those who have used quaternions to do rotations.

In math, it's usually possible to view an object or concept from many different (but equivalent) angles. In this video, we will see that the quaternions may be viewed as 4x4 real-valued matrices of a special form. What is interesting here is that if you know how to multiply matrices, you already know how to do more or less any calculation with quaternions. Moreover, we will see that the fundamental relations between the quaternionic imaginary units, i, j, and k also hold in matrix form.

There are a wide variety of different vector formalisms
currently utilized in engineering and physics. For example, Gibbs’ three-vectors, Minkowski four-vectors, complex spinors in quantum mechanics, quaternions used to describe rigid body rotations and vectors defined in Clifford geometric algebra. With such a range of vector formalisms in use, it thus appears that there is as yet no general agreement on a vector formalism suitable for science as a whole. This is surprising, in that, one of the primary goals of nineteenth century science was to suitably describe vectors in three-dimensional space. This situation has also had the unfortunate consequence of fragmenting knowledge across many disciplines, and requiring a significant amount of time and effort in learning the various formalisms. We thus historically review the development of our various vector systems and conclude that Clifford’s multivectors best fulfills the goal of describing vectorial quantities in three dimensions and providing a unified vector system for science.

This is a dramatic reading of "Deriving the Maxwell Source Equations Using Quaternions", a blog by the Stand-Up Physicist available at Science20.com. Start with the big picture - a definition of what the Maxwell equations do, account for all spacietime changes of spacetime change of a spacetime potential caused by a current density mediated by massless photons who have no sense of their own history.
The rules for multiplying quaternions are explained. The simplest quaternion derivative of a potential contains both the electric field E and magnetic field B. The product of the two ways to write the quaternion derivative of a potential generates the Lagrange density for the Maxwell source equations, B squared minus # squared. Much work goes into writing that out component by components, all 22 terms. The Euler-Lagrange equations are then used to generate both Gauss's and Ampere's Laws. A visualization of the two laws allows for a comparison.
The weak and strong forces are profoundly similar to EM, the key difference being the symmetry groups involved. Because quaternions have both multiplication and division, it is possible to write a form of Gauss's and Ampere's laws that have both SU(2) and SU(3) symmetries with underlies the weak and the strong forces. Whether that is at all relevant to Nature is an open question.

This is the second of three lectures on Hamilton's discovery of quaternions, and here we introduce rotations of three dimensional space and the natural problem of how to describe them effectively and compose them. We discuss the geometry of the sphere, take a detour to talk about composing planar rotations with different centers, talk about the connections between reflections and rotations, and introduce the basic algebraic framework with vectors, the dot product and the cross product. As in the first lecture, there is a lot of information here, so by all means take it slowly, and break it up by pausing and absorbing the ideas before going further.
Euler's theorem on the composition of rotations is an important ingredient. You will also learn that a curious addition of spherical vectors on the surface of a sphere provides an effective visual calculus for composing rotations.
This lecture prepares us for the next, where we introduce Hamilton's quaternions, which connect the dot product and cross product in a remarkable way, and yield probably the most effective current technique for managing rotations in graphics, video games and rocket science. So yes, this is really rocket science!

In this video we explore Euler Rotations, the most common method for orienting objects in 3d. It's by-product "gimbal lock" can cause headaches for animators because the animated motion can move in strange ways. Here we learn how euler's "rotation order" is a bit like hierachies, and how changing this order can help us to avoid gimbal problems. This is demonstrated with a solution to a common camera problem, by finding the correct rotation order.

In this video, we will introduce the concept of duality, involving a multiplication by the pseudoscalar. We will observe the geometric meaning of duality and also see that the cross product and wedge product are dual to one another, which means that the cross product is already contained within geometric algebra when working in three dimensions. It should also be clear, once we reflect upon duality, why it only makes sense to speak of a cross product in three dimensions. We will finally go through a number of applications of duality such as the equivalence of rotating about an axis and through a plane in G(3), the quaternionic product, the vector-bivector product, the scalar triple product, and the vector triple product.

This is a video I have been wanting to make for some time, in which I discuss what the quaternions are, as mathematical objects, and how we do calculations with them. In particular, we will see how the fundamental equation of the quaternions i^2=j^2=k^2=ijk=-1 easily generates the rule for quaternion multiplication. For the sake of brevity, I don't cover the famous application to 3D rotations in this video (perhaps in a subsequent one) but, of course, one must first know how to multiply two quaternions before talking about specific applications.

For anyone who wants to understand the cross product more deeply, this video shows how it relates to a certain linear transformation via duality. This perspective gives a very elegant explanation of why the traditional computation of a dot product corresponds to its geometric interpretation.
*Note, in all the computations here, I list the coordinates of the vectors as columns of a matrix, but many textbooks put them in the rows of a matrix instead. It makes no difference for the result since the determinant is unchanged after a transpose, but given how I've framed most of this series I think it is more intuitive to go with a column-centric approach.

In this video, we will take note of the even subalgebra of G(3), see that it is isomorphic to the quaternions and, in particular, the set of rotors, themselves in the even subalgebra, correspond to the set of unit quaternions. This brings the entire subject of quaternions under the heading of geometric algebra. We will also see that the rotors form a group with the geometric product.

The polar representation of quaternions is identical to what happens for complex numbers except the imaginary i gets replaced by an imaginary 3-vector, i, j, and k. To get to an event from the origin requires heading off in a certain direction at a certain speed. This is what the polar representation of quaternions accomplishes.

This is the third lecture on the problem of how to extend the algebraic structure of the complex numbers to deal with rotations in space, and Hamilton's discovery of quaternions, and here we roll up the sleaves and get to work laying out a concise but logically clear framework for this remarkable structure.
A main tool that we will use is the algebra of 2x2 matrices, however with (rational) complex number entries. This allows us a simplified way of proving the various laws of arithmetic for quaternions, and brings ideas from linear algebra, like the determinant and the trace of a matrix, into play.
We end with an important visual model of quaternions and the key formula that connects them with rotations of three dimensional space. There is a lot in this lecture, so be prepared to go slowly, take it in bite size pieces if necessary, and try your hand at the problems!
In the next and final lecture on this topic, we will amplify our understanding of the rotation mapping, and show how quaternions can be practically used to realize rotations and their compositions. All without any use of transcendental notions such as angle, cos or sin-- a big step forward in the conceptual understanding of this subject!!

Title: Quaternions, spatial Pythagorean hodographs, and rotations in three and four dimensions
Speaker: Professor Rida T. Farouki
Date: November 29, 2012
Series: UCD MAE Weekly Seminar
Where: Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, University of California, Davis.
Abstract:
Quaternions, the first example of a non-commutative algebra, arose as a by-product of Hamilton's failed attempt to construct an "algebra of triples". Hamilton envisaged the quaternions as the "new language" of science and technology, but their place was usurped by vector analysis, an algebraically crude and overtly pragmatic subset of the quaternion algebra. A simple quaternion expression generates Pythagorean quartuples
of polynomials, yielding an elegant rotation-invariant characterization for spatial Pythagorean-hodograph curves. Quaternions provide compact, intuitive descriptions for 3-dimensional rotations, a fact that has generated a renewed interest in them for applications in animation, robotics, computer graphics, and related fields. Quaternions can also describe 4-dimensional rotations, whose strange properties provide a
cautionary tale against extrapolating our geometric intuition to higher-dimension Euclidean spaces.

Philosophys powerful influence on the formation and development of the cultures of the West should not obscure the influence it has also had upon the ways of understanding existence found in the East. Every people has its own native and seminal wisdom which, as a true cultural treasure, tends to find voice and develop in forms which are genuinely philosophical. One example of this is the basic form of philosophical knowledge which is evident to this day in the postulates which inspire national and international legal systems in regulating the life of society. Nonetheless, it is true that a single term conceals a variety of meanings. Hence the need for a preliminary clarification. Driven by the desire to discover the ultimate truth of existence, human beings seek to acquire those universal elements of knowledge which enable them to understand themselves better and to advance in their own self-realization. These fundamental elements of knowledge spring from the wonder awakened in them by the contemplation of creation: human beings are astonished to discover themselves as part of the world, in a relationship with others like them, all sharing a common destiny. Here begins, then, the journey which will lead them to discover ever new frontiers of knowledge. Without wonder, men and women would lapse into deadening routine and little by little would become incapable of a life which is genuinely personal.
