The mathematical properties of division algebras of dimension 2 are investigated on the basis of the analysis of possible values of the parameters introduced into the laws of composition of basic elements. Generalized expressions for calculating the inverse and neutral elements of the indicated algebras are given. The relations of the parameters defining the normalized division algebras are determined. Possibilities of application of linear orthogonal transformations for the analysis of isomorphism of such algebras are considered. The concept of an exponential function is introduced to represent the elements of the considered non-commutative division algebra in exponential form.
