The Trisector solution comes to the market in a camouflaged version applicable to the concept of Smart Cities.
Assume that O be the origin of the x, y, z axes, T be the trisector line x = y = z of the positive octant.
If O is the origin of the x,y, z axes, (t) the trisector line x = y = z of the positive octant and n the plane x + y + z = 0 passing through the origin (O) and perpendicular to (t), then the tricomplex number u can be described by the projection S of the segment OP along the line (t), by the distance D from P to the line (t), and by the azimuthal angle 0 in the n plane.
Van Zandt said: "I always love what I call a trisector, which is doing good work, number one, maybe making a few dollars from it, number two, and, number three, making history when possible – and this has all three of them.
