uminus, -

Quaternion unary minus

Syntax

mQuat = -quat

Description

example

mQuat = -quat negates the elements of quat and stores the result in mQuat.

Examples

collapse all

Unary minus negates each part of a the quaternion. Create a 2-by-2 matrix, Q.

Q = quaternion(randn(2),randn(2),randn(2),randn(2))
Q = 2x2 quaternion array
      0.53767 +  0.31877i +   3.5784j +   0.7254k      -2.2588 -  0.43359i -   1.3499j +  0.71474k
       1.8339 -   1.3077i +   2.7694j - 0.063055k      0.86217 +  0.34262i +   3.0349j -  0.20497k

Negate the parts of each quaternion in Q.
