Nine-vectors, complex octonion/quaternion hypercomplex numbers, lie groups, and the 'real' world

Foundations of Physics 8 (3-4):303-311 (1978)
A “mental” multiplication scheme is given for the super hypercomplex numbers, which extend the 16-element Dirac algebra to 32 elements by appending the complex octonions. This extends the 5-vectors of relativity to 9-vectors. The problems with nonassociativity, for the group structures and wave equation covariance, are explored
