Quaternions vs Vectors?

  1. Jan 15, 2008 #1
    I read that people prefer vectors over quaternions (e.g. for electromagnetism), since one can do the same operations more transparent. Is it really a matter of preference? What's advantages of one or the other?

    Actually, differential forms together with vectors appears to be the currently preferred "flavor".
