Gilmore - Lie groups, physics and geometry. In geometry and physics, spinors / s p ɪ n ər / are elements of a complex vector space that can be associated with Euclidean space. Like geometric vectors and more general tensors, spinors transform linearly when the Euclidean space is subjected to a slight (infinitesimal) rotation.

However, when a sequence of such small rotations is composed to form an overall final rotation, the resulting.

Book An Introduction to Clifford Algebras and Spinors pdf Book An Introduction to Clifford Algebras and Spinors pdf: Pages By Jayme Vaz This text explores how Clifford algebras and spinors have been sparking a collaboration and bridging a gap between Physics and Mathematics.

This collaboration has been the consequence of a growing awareness of the importance of algebraic and geometric.

This book is unique in the literature on spinors and Clifford algebras in that it is accessible to both students and researchers while maintaining a formal approach to these subjects.

Besides thoroughly introducing several aspects of Clifford algebras, it provides the geometrical aspects underlying the Clifford algebras, as well as their applications, particularly in physics.

As is well known, spinors and representations are both widely used in the theory of elementary particles. The authors present the origin of spinors from representation theory, but nevertheless apply the theory of spinors to general relativity theory, and part of the book is devoted to curved space-time applications.
