# A 1d Up Approach to Conformal Geometric Algebra: Applications in Line Fitting and Quantum Mechanics

@article{Lasenby2020A1U, title={A 1d Up Approach to Conformal Geometric Algebra: Applications in Line Fitting and Quantum Mechanics}, author={Anthony N. Lasenby}, journal={Advances in Applied Clifford Algebras}, year={2020}, volume={30}, pages={1-16} }

We discuss an alternative approach to the conformal geometric algebra (CGA) in which just a single extra dimension is necessary, as compared to the two normally used. This is made possible by working in a constant curvature background space, rather than the usual Euclidean space. A possible benefit, which is explored here, is that it is possible to define cost functions for geometric object matching in computer vision that are fully covariant, in particular invariant under both rotations and…

Rigid Body Dynamics in a Constant Curvature Space and the '1D-up' Approach to Conformal Geometric Algebra

- MathematicsGuide to Geometric Algebra in Practice
- 2011

A ‘1D up’ approach to Conformal Geometric Algebra, which treats the dynamics of rigid bodies in 3D spaces with constant curvature via a 4D conformal representation, and the final view of ordinary translational motion is shown to correspond to precession in the 1D up conformal space.

New Geometric Methods for Computer Vision: An Application to Structure and Motion Estimation

A coordinate-free approach to the geometry of computer vision problems is discussed, believing the present formulation to be the only one in which least-squares estimates of the motion and structure are derived simultaneously using analytic derivatives.

The resulting geometrical framework thus overcomes Bell’s theorem by producing a strictly deterministic and realistic framework that allows a locally causal understanding of all quantum correlations, without requiring either remote contextuality or backward causation.
