Definition by presentation

The quaternion group has the following presentation:

The identity is denoted , the common element is denoted , and the elements are denoted respectively.

Confused about presentations in general or this one in particular? If you're new to this stuff, check out constructing quaternion group from its presentation. Sophisticated group theorists can read equivalence of presentations of dicyclic group

Verbal definitions

The quaternion group is a group with eight elements, which can be described in any of the following ways:

Multiplication table

In the table below, the row element is multiplied on the left and the column element on the right.
