The algebraic theory of spinors and Clifford algebras by Claude Chevalley, Pierre Cartier, Catherine Chevalley

By Claude Chevalley, Pierre Cartier, Catherine Chevalley

This quantity is the 1st in a projected sequence dedicated to the mathematical and philosophical works of the past due Claude Chevalley. It covers the most contributions via the writer to the speculation of spinors. considering that its visual appeal in 1954, "The Algebraic concept of Spinors" has been a far wanted reference. It provides the entire tale of 1 topic in a concise and particularly transparent demeanour. The reprint of the booklet is supplemented via a chain of lectures on Clifford Algebras given via the writer in Japan at in regards to the related time. additionally integrated is a postface by means of J.-P. Bourguignon describing the numerous makes use of of spinors in differential geometry constructed by way of mathematical physicists from the Seventies to the current day. An insightful evaluation of "Spinors" by way of J. Dieudonne can also be made on hand to the reader during this re-creation.
