In this book, the author aims to familiarise researchers and graduate students, in both physics and mathematics, with the application of non-associative algebras in physics. Topics covered by the author are wide-ranging to include algebras of observables in quantum mechanics, angular momentum and octonions, division algebra, triple-linear products and Yang-Baxter equations. The author also covers non-associative 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.
