Role of Division Operations

  • Fujio Yamaguchi


In chapter 26, we compared the characteristics of the Four-dimensional Processing with those of the Euclidean one in terms of many evaluation items and found that the results turned out to be surprisingly favorable for the Four-dimensional Processing in almost all items. From our common sense this sounds strange. The results of the comparison seem to claim a paradox:

“The Four-dimensional Processing, which gives a simpler system of techniques, provides, in reality, more general, more accurate, more robust and more systematic processing environment.”
