Module: tfg.geometry.transformation.quaternion

This module implements TensorFlow quaternion utility functions.

Defined in geometry/transformation/

A quaternion is written as

\(q = xi + yj + zk + w\)
, where
forms the three bases of the imaginary part. The functions implemented in this file use the Hamilton convention where
\(i^2 = j^2 = k^2 = ijk = -1\)
. A quaternion is stored in a 4-D vector
\([x, y, z, w]^T\)

More details about Hamiltonian quaternions can be found on this page.
