Quaternions and the Hopf Fibration
Below are some links about William Rowan Hamilton's
and about the
of the 3-sphere by linked circles.
Some of the
of the quaternions, including a picture of
Hamilton's original paper
on the quaternions.
A wonderful paper
David W. Lyons
using quaternions to give an undergraduate-accessible exposition of the Hopf bundle.
There are several fun ways to explore the Hopf fibration (and other beautiful mathematics) on the
University of Tokyo Mathematics Department
American Mathematical Society
from Maximilian Albert's
to explore the 3-sphere.
Robert G. Scharein's
site is well worth spending time on; it has a cool
of the Hopf bundle
