In this project we describe the non-associative finite-dimensional composition algebra called the Octonions and denoted O. We begin by introducing the structure and then go on to describe its finite multiplicative substructures. We then introduce the number theory associated to it before studying its symmetry structure. The project ends with an application of the octonions to physics.
