This week, we’d like to welcome Prof. Anca Mustata from UCC! She will be presenting an introduction to visually interpreting quaternions. Here “pictures” will be illustration of actions through geometric transformations. Using these, she will explain the motivation behind quaternions and the equations of the Hopf fibrations, looking at the topic in various different ways. All you should need to follow along is a little bit of group theory and algebra!

As always, we’ll host a reception afterwards in the MathSoc room, so be sure to stick around.
