An Introduction to Clifford Algebras and Spinors. Oxford University Press, Paperback, pp. Price GBP ISBN Keywords: book review ; Clifford algebra ; spinors.
A historical review of spinors is given together with a construction of spinor spaces as minimal left ideals of Clifford algebras. Spinor spaces of euclidean spaces over reals have a natural linear structure over reals, complex numbers or quaternions. Clifford algebras have involutions which induce bilinear forms or scalar products on spinor spaces. The automorphism groups of these scalar products of spinors are determined and also classified.

Pertti Lounesto My research focuses on algebras emerging from problems in geometry and physics, called Clifford algebras. 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. In geometry, information about orientation of subspaces can be encoded in simple multivectors, which can be added and multiplied. 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. I am also interested in misconceptions of research mathematicians , while they enter unexplored domains.
Беккер перешел на ломаный английский: - Спасибо. Не могли бы вы мне помочь.
У меня черный пояс по дзюдо. Беккер поморщился. - Предпочитаю вид спорта, в котором я могу выиграть. - Победа любой ценой? - улыбнулась Сьюзан. Защитник Джорджтауна перехватил опасную передачу, и по трибунам пронесся одобрительный гул.
И ради этого он вызвал меня в субботу. - Как сказать… - Она заколебалась.
