### Nullstellensatz for quaternionic plane curves?

By a quaternionic plane curve I mean the zero locus of a noncommutative polynomial in two variables, $x$ and $y$ say, over ${\Bbb H}$, Hamilton's quaternions. It is evidently well-known that, after ...

### Quaternions: ellipse effect

I would be interested in an explanation of the "six ellipse effect" produced by the pseudocode below (I also wonder how close are these to being actual ellipses). Note the code is somewhat similar to ...

### Polynomial function from $S^3$ to $S^3$ and quaternions

I am searching the polynomial functions from $S^3$ to $S^3$.
($S^3$ is the set of vectors $x$ in $\mathbb{R}^4$ such that $\|x\|=1$)
We say $g$ is a polynomial function from $S^3$ to $S^3$, if there ...

### Grunsky-Motzkin-Schoenberg formula

I found this formula in Brian McCartin's interesting book "Mysteries of the equilateral triangle" http://www.kettering.edu/news/mysteries-equilateral-triangle and it looks as follows:
Suppose that ...

### Hochschild cohomology of SU(2)

I have a question about the computation of an Hochschild Cohomology. Or at least about a space which really looks like a cohomology space. All the functions i consider are assumed to be smooth.
Let's ...

### Maximal compact subgroup of SL(2,|H)

The exceptional isomorphism $Spin(5,1)\simeq SL(2,\mathbb{H})$ is well-known, and I can find references that say the maximal compact of $Spin(5,1)$ is $Spin(5) \simeq Sp(2)$. So I know the answer to ...

### Computing local volumes : the case of Hecke p-adic subgroups

I am quite interested in knowing how to compute some volumes of groups defined on local fields $K$, mainly in order to evaluate the identity term in trace formulas. It is something well done in the ...

### Classification of symplectic representations of quaternion division algebras

I would like to know the classification of representations of the form $\rho:B^{\times}\to Sp(V,F)$ or ($Gsp(V)$), where $B$ is a quaternion division algebra over a number field $F$ (or ...

### Representations of Hamilton's real/complex quaternions algebra

A lot of works and questions deal with classifying representations of a simple central algebra of given dimension over a non-archimedean field, for instance here.
But do we know precisely such a ...

### Does Feuter regularity imply derivability in all directions?

The standard type of regularity in Clifford Calculus is the one introduced by Feuter, namely:
a function is Feuter regular iff it is in the zero set of the Clifford-Dirac
operator $D= ...

### How to take partial derivative of spherical interpolation of quaternions?

Using the standard definition of quaternionic spherical linear interpolation (slerp):
$$
Q(q_0,q_1,t) := q_0(q_0^{-1}q_1)^t,
$$
how can I take each partial derivative?
Actually, I'm confident how to ...

### Canonical forms of symmetric/skewsymmetric quaternionic matrix

$A$ belongs to $n$-dimensional quaternion symmetric matrix, in the sense that $A=A^T$, where $T$ means transpose. Under transformation $U$, $A\rightarrow U\cdot A\cdot U^T$, where $U$ is $n$-dim ...
