Abstract(s)Ruscheweyh and Salinas showed in 2004 the relationship of a celebrated theorem of Vietoris (1958) about the positivity of certain sine and cosine sums with the function theoretic concept of stable holomorphic functions in the unit disc. The present paper reveals that the coefficient sequence in Vietoris' theorem is identical to a number sequence obtained by a new combinatorial identity which involves generators of quaternions. In this sense Vietoris' sequence of rational numbers combines seemingly disperse subjects in Real, Complex and Hypercomplex Analysis. Thereby we show that a non-standard application of Clifford algebra tools is able to reveal new insights in objects of combinatorial nature.
