Abstract

I believe that biquaterrnions will play crucial role in the modern theory of gauge field. For me, biquaternionic algebra has particularly interest because of it has not only quadratic form but also the CUBIC form and they completely define the low of composition in this algebra. The bilinear law of composition for biquaternion contains not only anti-symmetric Lee but also symmetric Jordan structure. Some new results which deduced from Triality reformulation of quaternions are presented and discussed.
