Eugene Salamin is a mathematician who discovered (independently with Richard Brent) the Salamin–Brent algorithm, used in high-precision calculation of pi.

Eugene Salamin worked on alternatives to increase accuracy and minimize computational processes through the use of quaternions. Benefits may include:

  1. the design of spatio-temporal databases;
  2. numerical mathematical methods that traditionally prove unsuccessful due to buildup of computational error;
  3. therefore, may be applied to applications involving genetic algorithms and evolutionary computation, in general.
