Full Text 
In this book, the author aims to familiarise researchers and graduate students, in both physics and mathematics, with the application of nonassociative algebras in physics. Topics covered by the author are wideranging to include algebras of observables in quantum mechanics, angular momentum and octonions, division algebra, triplelinear products and YangBaxter equations. The author also covers nonassociative gauge theoretic reformulation of Einstein's general relativity theory and similar subjects. Much of the material found in this book is not available in other standard works. This book will be of interest to graduate students and research scientists in physics and mathematics.
