Quaternionic Version of Rotation Groups

Latief Rahmawati, Muhammad Ardhi Khalif, Muhammad Farchani Rosyid


Quaternionic version of rotation group SO(3) has been constructed. We construct
a quatenionic version of rotation operation that act to a quaternionic version of a
space coordinate vector. The computation are done for every rotation about each
coordinate axes (x,y, and z). The rotated quaternionic space coordinate vector con-
tain some unknown constants which determine the quaternionic rotation operator.
By solving for that constants, we get the expression of the quaternionics version
of the rotation operator. Finally the generators of th
