Abstract/Artist's Statement

This project is intended to supply an introductory explanation of how basic linear algebra operations work over a non-commutative division ring. Specifically it addresses these topics using the Quaternions as a basis for understanding linear algebra over skew fields. The project focuses on solving a system of linear equations over the Quaternions and determining when a matrix over the Quaternions is invertible.
