Can someone please extend this article to include rotations in spaces of two (and maybe higher)complex dimensions? Thanks PaulGEllis (talk) 12:38, 1 March 2011 (UTC)

References / notes and author names[edit]

The references need to be fixed. I assume that:

  • Lounsto (2001) p. 38
  • Lonesto (2001) p. 222
  • Lounesto (2001) p.87
  • Lounesto (2001) pp.27–28
  • Lounesto, Pertti (2001). Clifford algebras and spinors. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press. ISBN 978-0-521-00551-7.

All refer to the same author, albeit his name is spelled in three different ways. Maybe the notes and references could be reorganized; do we really need the page numbers, or could just all of them refer to the same footnote? --138.246.2.177 (talk) 15:13, 28 August 2012 (UTC)

Spellings fixed, thanks. Yes, the page numbers are needed, or at least highly recommended: for anyone wanting to check the reference it's very valuable and it takes little space. And it's much better to do it this way than give the book details in each <ref> tag, which would be unnecessarily verbose and even more likely to lead to errors.--JohnBlackburnewordsdeeds 15:49, 28 August 2012 (UTC)
