I am working on a mac and want to experiment and pay around with tf, eigen and quaterions in a jupyter notebook without doing a full ros install (because AFAIK the Mac install for ROS is still problematic.) I am not sure how or what subset I would need to install to achieve this.

Every package properly declares it's dependencies. If you pick any package from there you can introspect it's dependencies and build from there.

There are tools like the rosinstall_generator that can help you automatically resolve dependencies and help you get the source for the packages that you need.
