A Primer of Quaternions
by Arthur S. Hathaway
Publisher: Project Gutenberg 2006
Number of pages: 70
The book is prepared for average students with a thorough knowledge of the elements of algebra and geometry, and is believed to be a simple and elementary treatment founded directly upon the fundamental ideas of the subject. The theory is applied in the more advanced examples to develop the principal formulas of trigonometry and solid analytical geometry, and the general properties and classification of surfaces of second order.

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

This text introduces quaternions, their mathematical properties, and how they can be used to rotate objects. We introduce quaternion mathematics and discuss why quaternions are a better choice for implementing rotation than matrix implementations.
