Years ago I conceived a desire to read Hamilton's Elements of Quaternions
. This was part of my independent study of geometric algebras inspired by working on molecular dynamics and reading David Hestenes. There's a geometric algebra desk calculator lurking around here
somewhere, desperately in need of a rework which I promise should happen real soon now.
But back to this craving to read Sir William Rowan Hamilton in the original. Reading the original works of scientists is unfashionable.
