1. Let A B, A,B2, ... AnB» be any given system of posited right lines, the 2n points being all given; and let their vector sum,

AB=A1B1 + A2B2+. + An Bn, be a line which does not vanish. Then a point H, and a scalar h, can be determined, which shall satisfy the quaternion equation,

HA1. A1B1+...+H An. AnBn=h. AB; namely by assuming any origin 0, and writing,

041. A1Bit..+0An. AnBn 041. A Bit.. OH = T

h=s AiBit..

AiBit.. 2. For any assumed point C, let

Qc= CA1. A1B1+..+ CAn. AnBn; then this quaternion sum may be transformed as follows,

Qc= QH + CH. AB= (h+CH). AB; and therefore its tensor is,

TQc=(h2 + CH2). AB, in which AB and CH denote lengths.

3. The least value of this tensor TQc is obtained by placing the point Cat H; if then a quaternion be said to be a minimum when its tensor is such, we may write

min. Qc = Qa=h. AB; so that this minimum of Qc is a vector. 4. The equation,

TQc=c = any scalar constant > TQA, expresses that the locus of the variable point C is a spheric surface, with its centre at the fixed point H, and with a radius r, or CH, such that

r. AB=(TQc2 TQA?)!=(c? – h2. AB2)}; so that H, as being thus the common centre of a series of concentric spheres, determined by the given system of right lines, may be said to be the Central Point, or simply the Centre, of that System. 5. The equation,

TVQc=i =any scalar constant > TQA, represents a right cylinder, of which the radius = (013 - h2. AB+){ divided by AB, and of which the axis of revolution is the line,

VQc= QA = h. AB;
