The Quaternion Numbers

In this article, we define the set H of quaternion numbers as the set of all ordered sequences q = <x,y,w,z> where x,y,w and z are real numbers. The addition, difference and multiplication of the quaternion numbers are also defined. We define the real and imaginary parts of q and denote this by x = ℜ(q), y = ℑ1(q), w = ℑ2(q), z = ℑ3(q). We define the addition, difference, multiplication again and denote this operation by real and three imaginary parts. We define the conjugate of q denoted by q*' and the absolute value of q denoted by |q|. We also give some properties of quaternion numbers.
