Exercise: angle between high-dimensional unit vectors


I stumbled across this trigonometric formula for high-dimensional vector in the (d-1)-sphere while proof-reading the last two LSH papers (“beyond LSH”, and “optimal data-dependent LSH”). It is an interesting formula because it present the angle between the points fully characterized by the distance between the points.

So, let’s do it.
