**Doing Physics with Quaternions**

by Douglas B. Sweetser

2005**Number of pages**: 157

**Description**:

Quaternions are numbers like the real numbers: they can be added, subtracted, multiplied, and divided. Quaternions are composed of four numbers that work together as one. This book is an introduction to quaternions and a brief summary of important laws in physics written as quaternions.
