61) Now, from Eq. 60), if n2 = 1, then also L · n has square of one. Thus the restricted Lorentz group SO+ (3, 1) acts, through n → L · n, on the two-sphere. 6. In computer implementations of quantum fractals we will use the formula Eq. 61) repeatedly. However it is better to implement it ˜ = {˜ in a different way. Let us denote by n ni } the numerator: 3 n ˜i = Lij nj + Li4 . 62) j=1 Then the denominator of Eq. 61) is nothing else than the norm of the ˜ . Taking the quotient in Eq. 61) is equivalent to the normalization vector n of the vector.
