By David Hestenes (auth.), A. Micali, R. Boudet, J. Helmstetter (eds.)

This quantity includes chosen papers provided on the moment Workshop on Clifford Algebras and their purposes in Mathematical Physics. those papers diversity from numerous algebraic and analytic features of Clifford algebras to functions in, for instance, gauge fields, relativity thought, supersymmetry and supergravity, and condensed part physics. integrated is a biography and checklist of guides of Mário Schenberg, who, subsequent to Marcel Riesz, has made precious contributions to those themes.
This quantity can be of curiosity to mathematicians operating within the fields of algebra, geometry or certain services, to physicists engaged on quantum mechanics or supersymmetry, and to historians of mathematical physics.

However the lower dimensions are exceptional cases. Let us take some examples: A bivector B is simple only up to dimension 3. In other words the square B2 is real in dimension 3 (but not 4) For a vector a and a bivector B the product BaB is a vector only up to dimension 4. For a bivector B the element (l+B) (l-B)-l is in the spin group Spin(n) only up to dimension n = 5. A bivector B is simple if B2 is real. However, a 3-vector V with V2 real need not be simple, since we have 39 A. • Clifford Aigebras and their Applications in Mathematical Physics.
