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.
by Alexander Macfarlane - John Wiley & Sons , 1906
Contents: Addition of Coplanar Vectors; Products of Coplanar Vectors; Coaxial Quaternions; Addition of Vectors in Space; Product of Two Vectors; Product of Three Vectors; Composition of Quantities; Spherical Trigonometry; Composition of Rotations.

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.
