Abstract Share this page

The development of the algebra of quaternions is reviewed and discussed from a modern viewpoint stressing their aspect as 4-vectors and their educational value to the student of physics. Their relationship to 3-vectors, tensors, and complex matrices is noted. Geometrical visualization of their properties is developed. Their application to problems of polarized radiation and special relativity is described
