Versor

Versors are an algebraic parametrisation of rotations. In classical quaternion theory a versor is a quaternion of norm one (a unit quaternion). The corresponding 3-dimensional rotation has the angle {num|2}a about the axis r in axis–angle representation. The word is from Latin versus = `turned`, from pp. of vertere = `to turn`, and was intro...
