Abstract

It is shown that any four-dimensional real vector space with an inner product can be identified with a subspace of the product of two complex two-dimensional vector spaces. Making use of this identification, it is shown that each orthogonal transformation can be related with a pair of linear transformations acting on these two-dimensional spaces and several properties of tensors are also derived.
