Maths - Quaternion Notations - Euler Parameters

'Euler Parameters' which are just quaternions but with a different notation. It is shown as four numbers separated by commas instead of the usual notation with the imaginary parts denoted with i, j and k. 
Euler Parameters tends to be used in older textbooks, I don't think its used much these days.
