Quaternionic Switches Page

A copy of the source code, together with a Makefile for the programme qsearch is available here.

When run from a command line, the programme presents a menu of options for searching for quaternionic solutions to the Yang-Baxter equations:

These solutions may be used by the braid programme to calculate quaternionic invariants of virtiual knots and links, as described in [1].
