Calculating the Angle Between Projections of Vectors Via Geometric (Clifford) Algebra

Authors: James A. Smith

We express a problem from visual astronomy in terms of Geometric (Clifford) Algebra, then solve the problem by deriving expressions for the sine and cosine of the angle between projections of two vectors upon a plane. Geometric Algebra enables us to do so without deriving expressions for the projections themselves.
