%N Simple zero-divisors of Cayley-Dickson algebras

%C Zero divisors of the form e+f where e and f are units of the Cayley-Dickson algebra.

%H Joerg Arndt, <a href="http://www.jjj.de/fxt/#fxtbook">Matters Computational (The Fxtbook)</a> section 39.14.4 "Simple zero-divisors of the sedenions", p.820-821.

%H Joerg Arndt, <a href="http://www.jjj.de/fxt/demo/arith/#zero-divisors">List</a> of simple zero-divisors of the sedenions.

%e There are no zero-divisors for reals (n=0), complex numbers (n==1), quaternions (n=2), and octonions (n=3). For the sedenions there are 42 sums of two units that are zero divisors. For example ( 1 + 10 ) * ( 5 + 14 ) is zero, so (1+10) is a simple zero divisor (writing k for the k-th unit, starting with 0).
