$\begingroup$ 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 -- . Full text of "A primer of quaternions" The book is intended to embrace all the ordi- nary algebraic subjects, but its real value lies in the reliable guidance it offers to students who, having had an ordinary text-book drilling to the end of quadratics, wish to know what it .

The algebra of Quaternions is an structure first studied by the Irish mathematician William Rowan Hamilton which extends the two-dimensional complex numbers to four dimensions. Multiplication is non-commutative in quaternions, a feature which enables its representation of three-dimensional rotation. Hamilton's provocative discovery of quaternions founded the field of . AN INTRODUCTION TO QUATERNIONS WITH APPLICATION TO ROTATIONS 3 This property is important because without it the product of two or more terms, such as vwzq, is ambiguous. One must then include a lot of parentheses to dictate order. Matrix multiplication is associative, but cross product is Size: KB.

Unit quaternions, also known as versors, provide a convenient mathematical notation for representing orientations and rotations of objects in three dimensions. Compared to Euler angles they are simpler to compose and avoid the problem of gimbal ed to rotation matrices they are more compact, more numerically stable, and more nions have . Page iii - The chief aim has been to meet the wants of beginners in the class-room. The Elements and Lectures of Sir WR Hamilton are mines of wealth, and may be said to contain the suggestion of all that will be done in the way of Quaternion research and application: for this reason, as also on account of their diffuseness of style, they are not suitable for the purposes of elementary.

Great detailed exposition on quaternion algebra. The author starts out with an overview of traditional matrix algebra applied to 2D and 3D rotations, and then manages to show how quaternions, as an extension of complex numbers to represent rotations in 2D, are a useful tool for representing rotations in 3D/5.

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.Free Quaternions Textbooks Before I started maintaining The Free Textbook List, I had not heard of quaternions.

From a brief study of the topic to create this category, it would seem that it is a field that is strongly tied to both mathematics and physics.
