Split Octonionic Cauchy Integral Formula

  • Benjamin PratherEmail author


Cauchy integral formulas for the quaternions have been known since 1926. This result has previously been extended to the octonions and split quaternions. These techniques are extended to the split octonions. Thus Cauchy integral formulas are now known for all composition algebras over the real numbers.
