Conjugacy classification of quaternionic Möbius transformations. (English) Zbl 1158.15014
It is well known that the dynamics and conjugacy classes of a complex Möbius transformation can be determined from a single rational function of the coefficients of the transformation. The authors study the group of quaternionic Möbius transformations and identify simple rational functions of the coefficients of the transformations that determine dynamics and conjugacy.
