Converted to SVG.svg
This physical image could be recreated using vector graphics as an SVG file. This has several advantages; see Commons:Media for cleanup for more information. If an SVG form of this image is available, please upload it and afterwards replace this template with {{vector version available|new image name}}. It is recommended to name the SVG file "Hypersphere of rotations.svg" - then the template Vector version available (or Vva) does not need the new image name parameter.

Summary[edit]

This is work of my own to illustrate article "Quaternions and spatial rotation"

This represents the 4-dimensions hypersphere of the rotations in 3D space.

The hypersphere is intersected with plane Z = 0, so the represented rotations all have an horizontal axis (an axis in the xy plane).

The vertical dimension shows the rotation angle, from 0° to 360°.
