In physics, the concept of Clifford algebra, as such or in a disguise, is a necessity in the description of electron spin, because spinors cannot be constructed by tensorial methods, in terms of exterior powers of the vector space.
Scalar products of spinors are categorized by involutory anti-automorphisms of Clifford algebras. The beginning chapters could be read by undergraduates; vectors, complex numbers and quaternions are Jane Fort marked it as to-read Sep 15, I am also interested in misconceptions of research mathematicianswhile they enter unexplored domains.

Rafal Ablamowicz, Pertti Lounesto eds. This reveals a new class of spinors, residing among the Weyl, Majorana and Dirac spinors.
Pertti Lounesto My research focuses on algebras emerging from problems in geometry and physics, called Clifford algebras. A new classification of spinors is introduced, based on bilinear covariants of physical observables.
The beginning chapters could be read by undergraduates; vectors, complex numbers and quaternions are introduced with an eye on Clifford algebras. Clifford Algebras and Spinor Structures: Want to Read saving…. Physicists are familiar with this tool in the special case of one-dimensional subspaces, which they manipulate by vectors not by projection operators, which lose information about orientations.
