Description

Briefly, this submission is an extension of my last three submissions. I have extended the number of unknowns and equations for quaternions, octonions and sedenions. These are 4, 8 and 16 dimensional numbers, first described by Sir William Rowan Hamilton, then extended by his student, Arthur Caley. Once again, I have used the Transformation matrices corresponding to multiplication from both the left and the right. (All of these systems are nonabelian.) After possibly a series of transformations, the Eight-Step is applied.
