There are also many types of spinors, including Weyl, Pauli, Majorana and pure spinors. This book aims to provide a systematic elementary and complete introduction to Clifford algebras and spinors for a wide audience of students and researchers in different fields. The pre-requisite is a course in linear algebra. It starts with a nice, concise and useful presentation of the historical background of Clifford algebras and their relations to exterior and Grassmann algebras.
The classification of Clifford algebras is then given together with the definition of the associated Pin and Spin groups.
Frequently bought together
In the last chapter a systematic introduction to the world of spinors is given. Three categories of spinors are defined: algebraic, classical and operatorial.

The authors' approach is very clear and elementary despite the formal and rather heavy algebraic aspects involved. The numerous concrete examples given to illustrate each new notion are valuable for a better understanding of the subject and are helpful for potential applications in different fields. For example, the triality principle in dimension 8, which has many applications in physics and in mathematics, is studied in detail.
