The Link Between Complex Numbers and Vectors
Vectors came from Quaternions Before vectors, there were quaternions. Quaternions are the next step after complex numbers from real numbers. A complex number may be written as $$z = x + \hat{i} y$$ Where $$\hat{i} = – 1$$ A quaternion may be written as $$q = w + \hat{i}x + \hat{j} y + \hat{k}z$$ w […]
