Detailed Description

A Round Element is an n-sphere an can be operated.

A Round Element can be operated on by vsr::cga::Round static methods.

The conformal model of geometric algebra is based on the representation of \(p-1\)-spheres of \(\mathbb{R}^p\) as vectors in \(\mathbb{R}^{p+1,1}\)

Round Elements in 3D CGA


Points are the 1-blade vector of CGA, and a useful building block for constructing other Round elements.

\(n+1\)-spheres can be built by wedging \(n\)-spheres with a 0-sphere point
