    Book on Quaternions. The real numbers themselves, the complex numbers, the quaternions, and the octonions. I think one of the best ways to learn about the quaternions in specific, but really about any of these division algebras is to play around with examples some to see how noncommutativity breaks from your intuition from the reals.   With quaternions you lose the commutative law, with octonions you also lose the associative law. The main thing you're left with is the ability to divide. Back then, Baez explains, to publish a paper you would need a member of a learned society to give a talk about it at a meeting of the society, and it would appear in the society's journal, in.

The rest is devoted to a demonstration of the intimate connection between the mathematics of the division algebras and the Standard Model of quarks and leptons with U(l) x SU(2) x SU(3) gauge fields, and the connection of this model to lO-dimensional spacetime implied by the mathematics.

    I was exposed to quaternions, octonions, and sedenions at the University of Aalborg in Denmark a few years back. During the spring of , I enrolled in a Maple programming course, and designated quaternions as my project. The quaternion package was originally written for Maple 8. Two years later I updated it to Maple iii Therearealsomorespecializedoptions,beginningwiththeintroductorysections inpartIandcontinuingasfollows. ternionalgebrasandanalyticnumbertheory.

Quaternions and octonions enter the picture in chapter 9. It turns out, for example, that there are analogues of the special unitary groups and symplectic groups over \(\mathbb H\) and \(\mathbb O\); some special cases are worked out, via some fairly intricate calculations, and shown to be double coverings of previously seen matrix groups.
