- class DualQuaternion(real_q, inf_q)#
Dual quaternions can be used for rigid motions in 3D. Similar to the way that rotations in 3D space can be represented by quaternions of unit length, rigid motions in 3D space can be represented by dual quaternions of unit length. This fact is used in theoretical kinematics, and in applications to 3D computer graphics, robotics and computer vision.
Flat list representation of the underlying storage, length of
storage_dim(). This is used purely for plumbing, it is NOT like a tangent space.
- classmethod from_storage(vec)#
Construct from a flat list representation. Opposite of
- classmethod identity()#
Identity element such that
compose(a, identity) = a.
- Return type:
Apply the group operation with other.
Left-multiply with another dual quaternion.
