Girard's essay The quaternion group and modern physics discusses some roles of quaternions in physics. The essay shows how various physical covariance groups, namely SO(3), the Lorentz group, the general theory of relativity group, the Clifford algebra SU(2) and the conformal group, can easily be related to the quaternion group in.

The journey of quaternions started as a geometric and algebraic curiosity in Utility of quaternions in physics book midth century. Soon they were found to have applications in mechanics; then later that century they were applied to electromagnetism via Maxwell’s equations.

Quaternions did not return to fundamental Physics models untilwhen Finkelstein, Jauch, Schiminovich, and Speiser wrote a paper titled Some Physical Consequences of General Q-Covariance, Helvetica Physica Acta, Volume XXXV ()in which they showed that the quaternion imaginary degrees of freedom corresponded to the Higgs field.

I would just like to know more about quaternions because I did a project in my vector analysis course in which I had to give a brief history of William Rowan Hamilton's life, and quaternions have very much captured my interest, but it is hard to find any recommended literature on the subject.

There are some problems with using quaternions to describe spacetime. Quaternions have two important properties: (1) they form a four-dimensional vector space; (2) you can multiply quaternions together.

[1] The first property is obviously very suggestive, but it's no different from the usual four-vectors that we already use in special relativity. Utility of quaternions in physics ().

Alexander McAulay (9 December – 6 July ) was the first professor of mathematics and physics at the University of Tasmania, Hobart, was also a proponent of dual quaternions, which he termed "octonions" or "Clifford biquaternions".

McAulay was born on 9 December and attended Kingswood School in Bath. He proceeded to Caius College, Cambridge, there taking up a study Alma mater: University of Cambridge, University of. A new kind of quantum mechanics using inner products, matrix elements, and coefficients assuming values that are quaternionic (and thus noncommutative) instead of complex is developed.

This is the most general kind of quantum mechanics possessing the same kind of calculus of assertions as conventional quantum mechanics. The role played by the new imaginaries is by: This book presents the properties of quaternions and their applications.

The book proposes a pedagogical introduction to this new calculus, based on quaternions, with applications mainly in special relativity, classical electromagnetism and general relativity.

The volume is intended for students, researchers and instructors in physics, applied mathematics and engineering interested in this new quaternionic Clifford.

Dirac wrote at least one paper using quaternions (Applications of Quaternions to Lorenz Transformations), and after reading it I realized why people don't use quaternions. There was also The Theory of Relativity (Silberstein, ) which is fascinating, but this book does not encourage me to switch to quaternions, to say the least.

The utility of quaternions in mathematical physics in non-Euclidean space is much the same as in Euclidean, that is to say they are suitable for establishing fundamental relations.
