Dual numbers have nilpotents because they're an ordinary algebraic structure in a classical framework.

Conceptually they do different things: one is embedding the base field in the algebra and the other is embedding an n-dimensional vector space in the algebra. In a suitable programming language I'd replace e with something of type e :: Vector(n) -> Cliff(n). I definitely don't want to fold in the scalar part to get Vector(n+1) -> Cliff(n) because Cliff(n) acts on Vector(n) in an important way.<BR/><BR/><EM>Second,<BR/>The code you wrote can be parametrized on R without any tricks at all, see below.

I even played with fundeps but didn't quite get the solution you have.<BR/><BR/>I'll probably fold your latest addition into the code I added last weekend. I wrote stuff to deal with isomorphisms between algebraic structures eg. Quaternion (Quaternion a) is, in some sense, isomorphic to Matrix (Matrix a), although the isomorphism is non-trivial. Turns out these isomorphisms have a nice application and I'll post something about it eventually.sigfpehttp://www.blogger.com/profile/08096190433222340957noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-11295132.post-1157549704810109432006-09-06T06:35:00.000-07:002006-09-06T06:35:00.000-07:00A few more comments:First,Why is 'i' a separate me...A few more comments:<BR/><BR/>First,<BR/>Why is 'i' a separate method?

When you make R a parameter this gets to be a very general instance declaration, and those are often "dangerous", by that I mean that they apply far to often. So I've introduced the I type that is just the identity.<BR/><BR/>Furthermore, the 'b -> r' part of the class declaration is only important if you want to avoid adding a lot of type signatures.

I tried lots of messing about with multiparameter type classes and fundeps but a compile error would always crop up somewhere.<BR/><BR/>And I'm kinda surprised that someone actually did something with my code!sigfpehttp://www.blogger.com/profile/08096190433222340957noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-11295132.post-1157469833051285402006-09-05T08:23:00.000-07:002006-09-05T08:23:00.000-07:00When you say some things are better described in C...When you say some things are better described in C++, I presume you mean the function that takes an n and generates the type Cliff(n).<BR/><BR/>But just to show that how it looks in Haskell here's some code. The big difference between the Haskell and C++ versions of doing this is that the Haskell version is actually type checked, whereas in C++ it would only be checked when instantiating the template. (Also the Haskell version allows the argument n to be a dynamic (runtime) argument rather than static.)<BR/><BR/><BR/>First some preliminaries no define type level natural numbers.<BR/><BR/>> data Zero<BR/>> data Succ a<BR/>> type N0 = Zero<BR/>> type N1 = Succ N0<BR/>> type N2 = Succ N1<BR/>> type N3 = Succ N2<BR/>> type N4 = Succ N3<BR/>> type N5 = Succ N4<BR/>> type N6 = Succ N5<BR/>> type N7 = Succ N6<BR/>> type N8 = Succ N7<BR/>> type N9 = Succ N8<BR/>> type Plus2 n = Succ (Succ n)<BR/><BR/>The MkCliff and MkCliff' classes are really functions from n, a type level nutural, to c, which is Cliff(n) resp. Cliff'(n).<BR/><BR/>> class MkCliff n c | n -> c<BR/>> class MkCliff' n c | n -> c<BR/><BR/>The base cases for the Clifford algebras.<BR/><BR/>> instance MkCliff N0 R<BR/>> instance MkCliff' N0 R<BR/>> instance MkCliff N1 (Complex R)<BR/>> instance MkCliff' N1 (Split R)<BR/><BR/>And finally the inductive cases.<BR/><BR/>> instance (MkCliff' n c) => MkCliff (Plus2 n) (Quaternion c)<BR/>> instance (MkCliff n c) => MkCliff' (Plus2 n) (Matrix c)<BR/><BR/>Define the i and e functions, but now taking an extra argument that define which algebra to embed into.<BR/><BR/>> mk_i :: (MkCliff n c, Clifford c) => n -> R -> c<BR/>> mk_i _ = i<BR/>> mk_e :: (MkCliff n c, Clifford c) => n -> Int -> R -> c<BR/>> mk_e _ = e<BR/>> mk'_i :: (MkCliff' n c, Clifford c) => n -> R -> c<BR/>> mk'_i _ = i<BR/>> mk'_e :: (MkCliff' n c, Clifford c) => n -> Int -> R -> c<BR/>> mk'_e _ = e<BR/><BR/>And then define t and t' again.<BR/><BR/>> n9 = undefined :: N9<BR/><BR/>> t i = mk_e n9 i 1<BR/>> t' i = mk'_e n9 i 1augustsshttp://www.blogger.com/profile/05153404423721072935noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-11295132.post-1157397821203799162006-09-04T12:23:00.000-07:002006-09-04T12:23:00.000-07:00Dude, you rock.
