In fact, Clifford algebra tells us that there will be two quaternion representations in [R.
Finally, the ability to view quaternion rotations as function curves is the first of its kind, enabling artists to combine the smoothest method of rotation with control finesse of function curves displayed in familiar X, Y and Z axes.
In the first section we will shortly review the basics of Quaternion space as introduced in [1].
We thus see that we are able to derive Maxwell equations from the wave equation of the quaternion vector potential.
Using quaternions, we have recently shown that Maxwell's equations can be written as a single quaternionic equation (Arbab and Satti, 2009 [1]).
In the light of another paper suggesting that Maxwell equations can be generalized using quaternion numbers [3, 7], then we discuss a plausible extension of Proca equations using biquaternion number.

It was known for quite long time that a quaternion space can be generalized to a Clifford space, and vice versa; but how to find its neat link with more convenient metric form in the General Relativity theory, has not been explored extensively.
z], when multiplied by i, become the three generators k, j, i, respectively, for this unit quaternion group.
