Taylor & Francis, 2006. — 186 p. —ISBN: 1584887729Bringing geometric algebra to the mainstream of physics pedagogy, Geometric Algebra and Applications to Physics not only presents geometric algebra as a discipline within mathematical physics, but the book also shows how geometric algebra can be applied to numerous fundamental problems in physics, especially in experimental situations. This reference begins with several chapters that present the mathematical fundamentals of geometric algebra. It introduces the essential features of postulates and their underlying framework; bivectors, multivectors, and their operators; spinor and Lorentz rotations; and Clifford algebra. The book also extends some of these topics into three dimensions. Subsequent chapters apply these fundamentals to various common physical scenarios. The authors show how Maxwell's equations can be expressed and manipulated via space-time algebra and how geometric algebra reveals electromagnetic waves' states of polarization. In addition, they connect geometric algebra and quantum theory, discussing the Dirac equation, wave functions, and fiber bundles. The final chapter focuses on the application of geometric algebra to problems of the quantization of gravity. By covering the powerful methodology of applying geometric algebra to all branches of physics, this book provides a pioneering text for undergraduate and graduate students as well as a useful reference for researchers in the field.

In creating mathematical models of real processes, scientists, engineers and students frequently encounter differential equations whose exact solutions are necessarily complicated and are normally solvable only by computer or through complex formal mathematics. This practical book demonstrates how approximate methods may be used to minimise...

This book surveys Topology and Differential Geometry and also, Lie Groups and Algebras, and their Representations. The former topic is indispensable to students of gravitation and related areas of modern physics, including string theory. The latter has applications in gauge theory and particle physics, integrable systems and...

Having the right answer doesn't guarantee understanding. Encouraging students' development of intuition, this original work begins with a review of basic mathematics and advances to infinite series, complex algebra, differential equations, and Fourier series. Succeeding chapters explore multivariable and vector calculus, partial...
