In other words, the group of quaternions is isomorphic to the double cover Spin(3) of the rotation group SO(3). Rotations, quaternions, and double groups. This is not really a question about QM, its about the mathematics and terminology used to describe rotations in the study of the rotation group. Check out Quaternions and rotation sequences by Kuipers, and maybe Rotations, quaternions and double groups by Altmann (if you are on a budget). Download Rotations, quaternions, and double groups. Rotations.quaternions.and.double.groups.pdf. Quaternions are a simple and powerful tool for handling rotations and double groups. What on earth groups have to do with solving polynomial equations.

I have also finally finished getting through the introductory chapter of Rotations, Quaternions, and Double Groups by Simon L. Rotations, quaternions, and double groups Simon L. Each rotation in 3-dimensional real Euclidean space has two representations as a quaternion: the quaternion group double-covers the rotation group. Rotations, Quaternions, and Double Groups. Sł is the double cover of the group SO(3,R) of real orthogonal 3×3 matrices of determinant 1 since two unit quaternions correspond to every rotation under the above correspondence. Note that the quaternions q and −q represent the same rotation. Quaternions and Rotation Sequences [Jack B. Rotations, quaternions, and double groups by Simon L.
