The main topics of this technical report are 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 the well-known matrix implementations.

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.
