Complex numbers and quaternions have a wide array of applications. This paper beginsby briefly going over the history of complex numbers and quaternions, bringing up little knownfacts on main discoverers. Then, we dive into their important properties in relation to thenavigation applications we will go over. We will see their application in navigation can greatlyminimize time, work and error in various fields of navigation.
