Following a comprehensive historical introduction, the book illuminates the special properties of 3- and 4-dimensional Euclidean spaces using quaternions, leading to . quaternions. Advantages of unit quaternion notation There are at least eight methods used fairly commonly to represent rotation, including: (i) orthonormal matrices, (ii) axis and angle, (iii) Euler angles, (iv) Gibbs vector, (v) Pauli spin matrices, (vi) Cayley-Klein parameters, (vii) Euler or Rodrigues parameters, and (viii) Hamilton’s File Size: 50KB.

    $\begingroup$ You don't need a book on Clifford/ geometric or Lie algebras. Quaternions are only a small part of those topics. If you'd like to really use quaternions and understand exactly how and why they work then studying geometric algebra can help, but if you just want to be able to read Maxwell's treatise you should look at the way that quaternions were be used at that time -- possibly. but something is lost each time. Quaternions are not commutative and the next step, the Cayley numbers, are not associative. The next group after the Cayley numbers is no longer a division ring (not every number has a multiplicative inverse).8 Quaternion arithmetic Every quaternion can be written in terms of its basis components,File Size: KB.

The algebras produced by this process are known as Cayley–Dickson algebras, for example complex numbers, quaternions, and octonions.

In this section we describe, in a single notation, the three types of number that we have met; the scalars ℝ, the complex numbers ℂ and the quaternions ℍ. We consider a quaternion number p to be a two-component object (suggested by the formalism of complex numbers and by the matrix formulation of quaternions [17]).

The application of quaternions to spherical geometry and to. Hamilton offered to publicize Graves' discovery, but kept putting it off, absorbed in work on the quaternions. Eventually Arthur Cayley rediscovered them and published an article announcing their existence in For this reason they are sometimes called 'Cayley numbers' — but these days, all right-thinking people call them the 'octonions'.

This monograph is an accessible account of the normed algebras over the real field, particularly the quaternions and the Cayley numbers. The application of quaternions to spherical geometry and to mechanics is considered and the relation between quaternions and rotations in 3- and 4-dimensional Euclidean space is fully developed.

4 Cayley Numbers A Common Notation for Numbers ~ Cayley Numbers Angles and Cayley Numbers Cayley Number Identities Normed Algebras and the Hurwitz Theorem Rotations in 7-and 8-Dimensional Euclidean Space Basis Elements for Cayley Numbers Geometry of 8-Dimensional Rotations The first two chapters cover the imaginary unit and its integration with real numbers.

Chapter 3 describes how complex numbers work with matrices, and shows how to compute complex eigenvalues and eigenvectors.

Chapters 4 and 5 cover Hamilton’s invention of quaternions, and Cayley’s development of octonions, respectively. The Cayley-Dickson construction produces a sequence of higher-dimensional algebras that are like numbers in that they have a norm and a multiplicative inverse.

The crux of this construction is the “conjugate” of an element, whose product with the element is the square of the norm of the element.Multiplying two complex numbers a + b I and c + d I is straightforward. Ha,bL Hc,dL = Hac - bd, ad + bcL For two quaternions, b I and d I become the 3−vectors B and D, where B = x I + y J + z K and similarly for D.

Multiplication of quaternions is like complex numbers, but with the addition of the cross product.
