### Dissident algebras

Given a euclidean vector space V = (V,〈〉) and a linear map η: V ∧ V → V, the anti-commutative algebra (V,η) is called dissident in case η(v ∧ w) ∉ ℝv ⊕ ℝw for each pair of non-proportional vectors (v,w) ∈ ${V}^{2}$. For any dissident algebra (V,η) and any linear form ξ: V ∧ V → ℝ, the vector space ℝ × V, endowed with the multiplication (α,v)(β,w) = (αβ -〈v,w〉+ ξ(v ∧ w), αw + βv + η(v ∧ w)), is a quadratic division algebra. Up to isomorphism, each real quadratic division algebra arises in this way. Vector...
