In this paper, a new representational model based on dual quaternionic matrices is proposed for classical electromagnetism. After demonstrating the isomorphic matrix representations of dual quaternions, Maxwell's equations and the constitutive relations for electromagnetism are expressed in terms of dual quaternionic matrices. For this purpose, new 8 x 8 matrices connected with quaternion basis elements have been introduced. (C) Versita Warsaw and Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg. All rights reserved.
