The exceptional Lie group E8 plays a prominent role in both mathematics and theoretical physics. It is the largest symmetry group associated with the most general possible normed division algebra, namely, that of the non-associative real octonions, which—thanks to their non-associativity—form the only possible closed set of spinors (or rotors) that can parallelize the 7-sphere. By contrast, here we show how a similar 7-sphere also arises naturally from the algebraic interplay of the graded…

Local origins of quantum correlations rooted in geometric algebra

In previous publications I have proposed a geometrical framework underpinning the local, realistic, and deterministic origins of the strong quantum correlations observed in Nature, without resorting

Symmetric Derivation of the Singlet Correlations within a Quaternionic 3-sphere

We present a symmetric derivation of the strong correlations predicted by the entangled singlet state in a local-realistic model in which the physical space is assumed to be a quaternionic 3-sphere,

A 1d Up Approach to Conformal Geometric Algebra: Applications in Line Fitting and Quantum Mechanics

We discuss an alternative approach to the conformal geometric algebra (CGA) in which just a single extra dimension is necessary, as compared to the two normally used. This is made possible by working

Some recent results for $SU(3)$ and Octonions within the Geometric Algebra approach to the fundamental forces of nature

Different ways of representing the group $SU(3)$ within a Geometric Algebra approach are explored. As part of this we consider characteristic multivectors for $SU(3)$, and how these are linked with

Quaternion Algebra on 4D Superfluid Quantum Space-Time: Can Dark Matter Be a Manifestation of the Superfluid Ether?

Quaternions are a natural framework of 4D space-time, where the unit element relates to time, and three others relate to 3D space. We define a quaternion set of differential torsion operators (shifts

Dr. Bertlmann’s Socks in a Quaternionic World of Ambidextral Reality

This pedagogical paper considers how singlet correlations between a pair of entangled fermions can be understood as classically as those between Dr. Bertlmann’s colorful socks within a toy model and a real world of three-dimensional quaternionic sphere.

Bell’s Theorem Versus Local Realism in a Quaternionic Model of Physical Space

A local, deterministic and realistic model within a Friedmann-Robertson-Walker spacetime with a constant spatial curvature that describes simultaneous measurements of the spins of two fermions emerging in a singlet state from the decay of a spinless boson is presented.

On the Octonion-like Associative Division Algebra

Using elementary linear algebra, this paper clarifies and proves some concepts about a previously introduced octonion-like associative division algebra. For two specific seminorms described in the

Retraction article: Eight-dimensional octonion-like but associative normed division algebra

Abstract We present an eight-dimensional even sub-algebra of the -dimensional associative Clifford algebra and show that its eight-dimensional elements denoted as and respect the norm relation thus

Reply to “Comment on ‘Dr. Bertlmann’s Socks in a Quaternionic World of Ambidextral Reality”’

This response to a critique of one of my papers is demonstrated point by point that, contrary to its claims, the critique has not found any mistakes in the paper, either in the analytical model of the singlet correlations or in its event-by-event numerical simulation based on Geometric Algebra.



Octonions and triality

In this chapter, we explore another generalization of C and IE, a non-associative real algebra, the Cayley algebra of octonions, (D. Like complex numbers and quaternions, octonions f o r m a real

It is shown that the E8 root system can in fact be constructed from the icosahedron alone and can thus be viewed purely in terms of 3D geometry, which opens up a novel interpretation of these phenomena in Terms of spinorial geometry.

An Exactly soluble sector of quantum gravity

Cartan's spacetime reformulation of the Newtonian theory of gravity is a generally-covariant Galilean-relativistic limit-form of Einstein's theory of gravity known as the Newton-Cartan theory.

Geometry of entangled states, Bloch spheres and Hopf fibrations

We discuss a generalization of the standard Bloch sphere representation for a single qubit to two qubits, in the framework of Hopf fibrations of highdimensional spheres by lower dimensional spheres.

Geometric Algebra for Physicists

Geometric algebra is a powerful mathematical language with applications across a range of subjects in physics and engineering. This book is a complete guide to the current state of the subject with

Octonionic geometry and conformal transformations

We describe space-time using split octonions over the reals and use their group of automorphisms, the non-compact form of Cartan's exceptional Lie group G2, as the main geometrical group of the


THE paradox of Einstein, Podolsky and Rosen [1] was advanced as an argument that quantum mechanics could not be a complete theory but should be supplemented by additional variables. These additional

Restoring Local Causality and Objective Reality to the Entangled Photons

Unlike our basic theories of space and time, quantum mechanics is not a locally causal theory. Moreover, it is widely believed that any hopes of restoring local causality within a realistic theory

A Non-Associative Quantum Mechanics

A non-associative quantum mechanics is proposed in which the product of three and more operators can be non-associative one. The multiplication rules of the octonions define the multiplication rules

Mathematical Foundations of Quantum Mechanics was a revolutionary book that caused a sea change in theoretical physics. Here, John von Neumann, one of the leading mathematicians of the twentieth
