ruggie saidI'm highly amused that people measure their hands to a resolution of a tenth of an inch.
Well... it's a scientific formula you see. You take the ruler and lay it longitudinally across your open palm and take the measurement from approximate area of the scaphoid carpal bone up to the distal phalanges of your middle finger. Then you lay it laterally against your palm and take the approximate measurement of the greatest width of the metacarpals and the narrowest and then average it. Now set the longitudinal measurement as A and the lateral measurement as B and the index of uncertainty of each respectively as a and b then |B> = b1|A1> + b2|A2> illustrated by the following where |B> is represented by unit vectors:
So, for all complex numbers c, [c*]* = c, but c* = c just in case c is real.) Now definition of the inner product of |A> and |B> for complex spaces can be given in terms of the conjugates of complex coefficients as follows. Where |A1> and |A2> are the unit vectors described earlier, |A> = a1|A1> + a2|A2> and |B> = b1|A1> + b2|A2>, then
< A|B> = (a1*)(b1) + (a2*)(b2)
The most general and abstract notion of an inner product, of which we've now defined two special cases, is as follows. is an inner product on a vector space V just in case
1. < A|A> = |A|2, and < A|A>=0 if and only if A=0
2. < B|A> = < A|B>*
3. < B|A+C> = < B|A> + < B|C>.
It follows from this that
1. the length of |A> is the square root of inner product of |A> with itself, i.e.,
|A| = √< A|A>,
2. |A> and |B> are mutually perpendicular, or orthogonal, if, and only if,
< A|B> = 0.
Thus you get the exact measurements of your hands if you subscribe to the Manist school of thought which ascribes the Corelli Determination Factor as the most accurate way of getting your hand index factor which must then be translated into the desire standard units of measurements. Of course, it can also be applied for dorsal, ventral, and even cross-sectional, trans-lateral, transversal, transdimensional, intergalactic, and pandactylic measurements if so desired, though it is recommended that you use the Skipp Displacement Theorem as well as the Tommy Hilfiger Extraspatial Ratio when doing so.
