From vectors to spinors, and beyond

Spinors are usually considered as weird objects that cannot be easily understood in intuitive terms. But within the context of  Clifford algebra Cl(1,3) there exist a well-known procedure to construct spinors in terms of vectors, and their wedge products. In … Continue reading

Geometry and Physics (Part 2)

Clifford Space: An Extension of Spacetime An extended object, O, can be be sampled by a finite set of parameters, for instance, by the center of mass coordinates, and by the orientation of its axes of symmetries. Higher multipole deformations, … Continue reading

Geometry and Physics (Part 1)

Geometric Calculus Based on Clifford Algebra In 1992 I met prof. Waldyr A. Rodrigues, jr., who introduced me into the subject of Clifford algebras. We were guests of prof. Erasmo Recami at the Institute of Theoretical Physics, Catania, Italy. Until … Continue reading
