Resumo: Quaternions are non-commutative complex numbers that have been applied to generalize quantum theories. In this talk we introduce quaternions and the attempt to rewrite quantum mechanics using them. By way of example, we present the solution of the quaternionic Dirac equation for a step potential.
PS: Those that can come will have the chance to enjoy some Spanish “Turrón”.
