## A Derivation of Maxwell Equations in Quaternion Space

**Authors:** V. Christianto, Florentin Smarandache

Quaternion space and its respective Quaternion Relativity (it also may be called as Rotational
Relativity) has been defined in a number of papers including [1], and it can
be shown that this new theory is capable to describe relativistic motion in elegant and
straightforward way. Nonetheless there are subsequent theoretical developments which
remains an open question, for instance to derive Maxwell equations in Q-space. Therefore
the purpose of the present paper is to derive a consistent description of Maxwell
equations in Q-space. First we consider a simplified method similar to the Feynman's
derivation of Maxwell equations from Lorentz force. And then we present another
derivation method using Dirac decomposition, introduced by Gersten (1999). Further
observation is of course recommended in order to refute or verify some implication of
this proposition.
