Book Title:The Theory of Spinors. Describes orthgonal and related Lie groups, using real or complex parameters and indefinite metrics. Develops theory of spinors by giving a purely geometric definition of these mathematical entities.

The whole mathematical theory of spinors is within Clifford algebra, and so this book is about Clifford algebra. Spinor theory is really the theory of empty space, and so this book is about empty space. Spinors were originally introduced by the French mathematician Élie Cartan in (and subsequently greatly expanded upon by Hermann Weyl, Richard Brauer and Oswald Veblen).

Unfortunately, Cartan’s book The Theory of Spinors is quite formal and of little use to the undergraduate (I still find it incomprehensible).File Size: 97KB.

space, one can represent twistors in terms of spinors. The spinor is said to "represent" the twistor. The twistor is described as a complex two-plane in the complex Minkowski space (see Section 3 and see reference [3] and references on twistor theory and the spinor calculus cited in this reference).File Size: KB.

The theory of spinors and the methods of the tensor representation of spinors and spinor equations are thoroughly expounded in four-dimensional and three-dimensional spaces. Very useful and important relations are derived that express the derivatives of the spinor fields.

Chev alley based his Algebr aic theory of spinors [10] on the notion of minimal ideals of Cliﬀord algebras, an idea considered before by Riesz [19] and, implicitly, by physicists in the con text. 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.

Finally, the linear representations of the group of rotations in that space (of particular importance to quantum mechanics) are also examined.

The text strives to seamlessly combine these various viewpoints and is devoted to a wider audience of both physicists and mathematicians.

Among the existing approaches to Clifford algebras and spinors this book is unique in that it provides a didactical presentation of the topic and is accessible to both students and researchers.

theory of groups in physics. This book published in has none of the later Lie algebra representations of the Cartan generalization of groups and thus, like Weyl's similar book. Although written in the early 20th century, this short text on spinors actually contains a great background for some of the fundamental concepts needed to understand Quantum Mechanics (the Dirac equation in particular) and Loop Quantum Gravity/5.

While the basic orientation of the book as a whole is mathematical, physicists will be especially interested in the final chapters treating the applications of spinors in the rotation Author: Élie Cartan.
