Abstract:
For commutative Banach
algebras B and I and a continuous representation π: B → M(I), where
M(I) are those bounded linear operators T: I → I that satisfy T(ij) =
iT(j) for all i,j in I, the direct sum B I can be made into a
commutative Banach algebra which contains B and I as respectively a
closed subalgebra and a closed ideal. This algebra is called the
semidirect product of B and I. Some topological aspects of the
character space of a semidirect product are described. Furthermore,
decompositions
of commutative Banach algebras into the direct sum of a subalgebra and
a principal ideal are investigated.

Abstract:
In general, the orientation
interpolation of industrial robots has been done based on Euler angle
system which can result in singular point (socalled Gimbal Lock).
However, quaternion interpolation has the advantage of natural
(specifically smooth) orientation interpolation without Gimbal Lock.
This work presents the application of quaternion interpolation,
specifically Spherical Linear IntERPolation (SLERP), to the orientation
control of the 6axis articulated robot (RS2) using LabVIEW and RecurDyn.
For the comparison of SLERP with linear Euler interpolation in the view
of smooth movement (profile) of joint angles (torques), the two methods
are dynamically simulated on RS2 by using both LabVIEW and RecurDyn.
Finally, our original work, specifically the implementation of SLERP
and linear Euler interpolation on the actual robot, i.e. RS2, is done
using LabVIEW
motion control tool kit. The SLERP orientation control is shown to be
effective in terms of smooth joint motion and torque when compared to a
conventional (linear) Euler interpolation.

Issue 1, October 1992, Pages 63–116  Web

Abstract: It
is shown that widely used implicit schemes, in particular the classical
Newmark family of algorithms and its variants, generally fail to
conserve total angular momentum for nonlinear Hamiltonian systems
including classical rigid body
dynamics, nonlinear elastodynamics, nonlinear rods and nonlinear
shells.
For linear Hamiltonian systems, it is well known that only the
CrankNicholson scheme exactly preserves the total energy of the
system.
This conservation property is typically lost in the nonlinear regime. A
general class of implicit timestepping algorithms is presented which
preserves exactly the conservation laws present in a general
Hamiltonian system with symmetry, in particular
the total angular momentum and the total energy.
Remarkably, the actual implementation of this class of algorithms can
be effectively accomplished by means of a simple twostep solution
scheme which results in essentially no added computational cost
relative to standard implicit
methods.
A complete analysis of these algorithms and a related class of schemes
referred to as symplectic integrators is given.
The good performance of the proposed methodology is demonstrated by
means of three numerical examples which constitute representative model
problems of nonlinear elastodynamics, nonlinear rods and nonlinear
shells.

Abstract: The
present discourse develops an enlarged exploration of the matrix
formulation of finite rotations in space initiated in [1]. It is shown
how a consistent but subtle matrix calculus inevitably leads to a
number of elegant expressions for the transformation or rotation matrix
T
appertaining to a
rotation
about an arbitrary axis. Also analysed is the case of multiple
rotations about fixed or follower axes. Particular attention is paid to
an explicit derivation of a single compound rotation vector equivalent
to two consecutive arbitrary rotations. This theme is discussed in some
detail for a number of cases. Semitangential rotations—for which
commutativity holds—first proposed in [2, 3] are also considered.
Furthermore, an elementary geometrical analysis of large rotations is
also given. Finally, we deduce in an appendix, using a judicious
reformulation of quarternions, the compound pseudovector representing
the combined effect of n
rotations.
In the author's opinion the
present approach appears preferable to a pure vectorial scheme—and even
more so to an indicial formulation— and is computationally more
convenient.

perspective projections in 3dimensions by rotations in 4dimensions.

Abstract:
We show how to represent perspective projections in 3dimensions using
rotations in 4dimensions. This representation permits us to replace
classical singular 4x4 matrices for perspective projection with
nonsingular 4x4 orthogonal matrices. This approach also allows us to
compute perspective projections by sandwiching vectors between two
copies of a unit quaternion. In addition to deriving explicit formulas
for these 4x4 rotation matrices for perspective projection, we also
explain the geometric intuition underlying the observation that
perspective projections in 3dimensions can be represented by rotations
in 4dimensions. We show too that every rotation in 4dimensions models
either a rotation, a reflection, a perspective projection, or one of
their composites in 3dimensions.

Abstract:
Schwinger has pointed
out that the YangMills vector boson implied by associating a
generalized gauge transformation with a conservation law (of baryonic
charge, for instance) does not necessarily have zero mass, if a certain
criterion on the vacuum fluctuations of the generalized current is
satisfied. We show that the theory of plasma oscillations is a simple
nonrelativistic example exhibiting all of the features of Schwinger's
idea. It is also shown that Schwinger's criterion that the vector
field m≠0 implies that the matter spectrum before including the
YangMills interaction contains m=0, but that the example of
superconductivity illustrates that the physical spectrum need not. Some
comments on the relationship between these ideas and the zeromass
difficulty in theories with broken symmetries are given.

The notion,
introduced 50 years ago, that electrons could be affected
by electromagnetic potentials without coming in contact with actual
force fields was received with a skepticism that has spawned a
flourishing of experimental tests and expansions of the original idea.

Editorial Reviews
From the Back Cover
The idea of
modeling
the behavior of phenomena at multiple scales has
become a useful tool in both pure and applied mathematics.
Fractalbased techniques lie at the heart of this area, as fractals are
inherently multiscale objects; they very often describe nonlinear
phenomena better than traditional mathematical models. In many cases
they have been used for solving inverse problems arising in models
described by systems of differential equations and dynamical systems.
"FractalBased Methods in Analysis" draws together, for the first time
in book form, methods and results from almost twenty years of research
in this topic, including new viewpoints and results in many of the
chapters.
For each topic the theoretical framework is carefully explained using
examples and applications.
The second chapter on basic iterated function systems theory is
designed to be used as the basis for a course and includes many
exercises. This chapter, along with the three background
appendices on topological and metric spaces, measure theory, and basic
results from setvalued analysis, make the book suitable for selfstudy
or as a source book for a graduate course.
The other chapters illustrate many extensions and applications of
fractalbased methods to different areas.
This book is intended for graduate students and researchers in applied
mathematics, engineering and social sciences.

Summary:
Next week, physicists
working with the world's biggest atom smasher—the Large Hadron Collider
(LHC) at the European particle physics laboratory, CERN—will report the
latest results of searches for the Higgs, the key to physicists'
explanation of how all particles get their mass. Nobody expects a
definitive claim of discovery, but given the amount of data the LHC has
produced in 2 years of running, some physicists say that—if it's
there—the Higgs should begin to emerge from "background"
particle collisions like a sapling rising above the grass.

5240703
Abstract: Quaternion multiplication can
be applied to rotate vectors
in 3dimensions. Therefore in Computer Graphics, quaternions are
sometimes used in place of matrices to represent rotations in
3dimensions. Yet while the formal algebra of quaternions is wellknown
in the Graphics community, the derivations of the formulas for this
algebra and the geometric principles underlying this algebra are not
well understood.
The goals of this paper are:
i.To provide a fresh geometric interpretation of quaternions,
appropriate for contemporary Computer Graphics;
ii.To derive the formula for quaternion multiplication from first
principles;
iii.To present better ways to visualize quaternions,and the effect of
quaternion multiplication on points and vectors in 3dimensions based on
insights from the algebra and geometry of multiplication in the complex
plane;
iv.To develop simple, intuitive proofs of the sandwiching formulas for
rotation and reflection;
v.To show how to apply sandwiching to compute perspective projections.
In Part I of this paper, we investigate the algebra of
quaternion multiplication and focus in particular on topics i and ii.
In Part IIwe apply our insights from Part I to analyze the geometry of
quaternion multiplication with special emphasis on topics iii, iv and v.

The maximal subgroups W(SU(5)):Z_{2}and
W(H_{3})
× Z_{2}of W(H_{4})
play important roles in the analysis of cell structures of the dual
polytopes. In particular, the Weyl–Coxeter group W(SU(4))
is used
to determine the tetrahedral cells of the polytope {3, 3, 5}, and the
Coxeter group W(H_{3})is
used for the dodecahedral cells of {5, 3, 3}. Using the Liealgebraic
techniques in terms of quaternions, we explicitly constructcell
structures forming the vertices of the 4D polytopes.
