Optics Classical and Quantum Mechanics Electromagnetism Algebra: Discovered Quaternions & Biquaternions!

This young man, I do not say will be, but is, the first mathematician of his age Bishop Dr. John Brinkley

Review of Quaternions, H

A quaternion is a number of the form of: Q = a + bi + cj + dk where a, b, c, d R, 2 2 2 and i = j = k = ijk = -1.

So what is a biquaternion?

Biquaternions

2 2 i =j = 2 k =

ijk = -1.

Biquaternions

CONFUSING: (a+bi) + (c+di)i + (w+xi)j + (y+zi)k

* Notice this i is different from the i component of the basis, {1, i, j, k} for a (bi)quaternion! *

B = (a +bi) + (c+di)e1 +(w+xi)e2 +(y+zi)e3

Biquaternions

B can also be written as the complex combination of two quaternions: B = Q + iQ where i =-1, and Q,Q H.

B = (a+bi) + (c+di)e1 + (w+xi)e2 + (y+zi)e3 =(a + ce1 + we2 +ye3) +i(b + de3 + xe2 +ze3)

where a, b, c, d, w, x, y, z R

ADDITION: We define addition component-wise:

where a, b, c, d C where w, x, y, z C

ADDITION: Closed Commutative Associative Additive Identity 0 = 0 + 0e1 + 0e2 + 0e3 Additive Inverse: -B = -a + (-b)e1 + (-c)e2 + (-d)e3

SCALAR MULTIPLICATION: hB =ha + hbe2 +hce3 +hde3

where h C or R

MULTIPLICATION: The formula for the product of two biquaternions is the same as for quaternions: (a,b)(c,d) = (ac-db*, a*d+cb) where a, b, c, d C.

Closed Associative NOT Commutative Identity:

biquaterions

So far, the biquaterions over C have all the same properties as the quaternions over R.

DIVISION?

In other words, does every non-zero element have a multiplicative inverse?

Recall for a quaternion, Q H,

where a, b, c, d R

Quaternions (over R)

Vector Space?

Algebra? Division Algebra? Normed Division Algebra?

Biquaternions (over C)

Define a map f: BQ M2x2(C) by the following: f(w + xe1 + ye2 + ze2 ) =

w+xi -y+zi

y+zi w-xi

where w, x, y, z C.

We can show that f is one-to-one, onto, and is a linear transformation. Therefore, BQ is isomorphic to M2x2(C).
