Quaternion Graphical representation of quaternion units product as 90°-rotation in 4D-space, ij = k, ji = −k, ij = −ji History Quaternion plaque on Brougham (Broom) Bridge, Dublin, which says: Here as he walked by on the 16th of October 1843 Sir William Rowan Hamilton in a flash of genius discovered the fundamental formula for quaternion multiplicationi2 = j2 = k2 = ijk = −1 & cut it on a stone of this bridge Quaternion algebra was introduced by Hamilton in 1843. Important precursors to this work included Euler's four-square identity (1748) and Olinde Rodrigues' parameterization of general rotations by four parameters (1840), but neither of these writers treated the four-parameter rotations as an algebra. Carl Friedrich Gauss had also discovered quaternions in 1819, but this work was not published until 1900. i2 = j2 = k2 = ijk = −1, into the stone of Brougham Bridge as he paused on it. On the following day, Hamilton wrote a letter to his friend and fellow mathematician, John T.

The Story of Mathematics - A History of Mathematical Thought from Ancient Times to the Modern Day Follow the story as it unfolds in this series of linked sections, like the chapters of a book. Read the human stories behind the innovations, and how they made - and sometimes destroyed - the men and women who devoted their lives to the Story of Mathematics.

Note that I do not mention units in any of the equations on this page. Assumptions | Method 2 For a right-angled triangle: Where: R is the longest side (the hypotenuse), x and y are the other two sides. Using this equation on the triangle in the figure above, the longest side is the radius of the planet plus the height of the observer (r + h) , and the other two sides are d and r . Or, re-arranged: Or: So the total distance to the horizon is given by: This equation will work for any size world, and any height of observer. Assumptions | Method 1 Back to My Roleplaying Page .
