quaternion edit page

The class quaternion realizes the internal representation of rotations and orientations in MTEX. An important difference is that an unit quaternion q and its antipodal -q are considered as different while the corresponding rotations are equal.


q = quaternion(a,b,c,d)
q = quaternion.rand
q = quaternion.id
q = quaternion.nan


a, b, c, d double
