Any query on the necessity of this article may be informed by the discussion at Talk:Bivector#Not bivector. The paragraph Bivector#History skews the story of bivectors, which began with William Rowan Hamilton, who also coined the term vector. This article describes Hamilton's concept of bivector, still used by Ronald Shaw in 1970.Rgdboer (talk) 01:47, 3 February 2013 (UTC)

A vigorous discussion ensued, but is now Archived (#2), so another notice was placed at Talk:Bivector#Biradials. Compare the References of the articles to gauge their support in literature.Rgdboer (talk) 02:55, 10 March 2015 (UTC)
