The second part is devoted to the theory of spinors in spaces of any number of dimensions, and particularly in the space of special relativity (Minkowski space). While the basic orientation of the book as a whole is mathematical, physicists will be especially interested in the final chapters treating the applications of spinors in the rotation Author: Élie Cartan. As is well known, spinors and representations are both widely used in the theory of elementary particles. The authors present the origin of spinors from representation theory, but nevertheless apply the theory of spinors to general relativity theory, and part of the book Brand: Moshe Carmeli; Shimon Malin.

Spinor Indices Edit this section. Spinors have 1 Spinor Index, represented in the same way as a Contravariant Index.. For example, if $ \psi^\mu $ is a spinor, then $ \mu $ is the Spinor Index.. Intuitive understanding Edit this section. Spinors can be intuitively understood in the following ways. Spinors are Vectors of a space whose transformations are closely related to rotations in a.

The applications of spinors in field theory and relativistic mechanics of continuous media are considered. Spinors were originally introduced by the French mathematician Élie Cartan in (and subsequently greatly expanded upon by Hermann Weyl, Richard Brauer and Oswald Veblen). Unfortunately, Cartan’s bookThe Theory of Spinorsis quite formal and of little use to the undergraduate (I still find it incomprehensible).

A few research workers such as Fueter realised the power of this algebraic scheme, but the subject only began to be appreciated more widely after the publication of Chevalley's book, 'The Algebraic Theory of Spinors' inand of Marcel Riesz' Maryland Lectures in This is an excellent text book on the theory of spinors.

I would recommend it to anyone who is studying or working in the field of physics/5(3). The book is divided into two parts.

The first is devoted to generalities on the group of rotations in n-dimensional space and on the linear representations of groups, and to the theory of spinors in three-dimensional space. Finally, the linear representations of the group of rotations in that space (of particular importance to quantum mechanics Brand: Dover Publications.The theory of spinors and the methods of the tensor representation of spinors and spinor equations are thoroughly expounded in four-dimensional and three-dimensional spaces.

Very useful and important relations are derived that express the derivatives of the spinor fields in terms of the derivatives of various Jean Hladik - Google Books.The constructions given above, in terms of Clifford algebra or representation theory, can be thought of as defining spinors as geometric objects in zero-dimensional space-time.

To obtain the spinors of physics, such as the Dirac spinor, one extends the construction to obtain a spin structure on 4-dimensional space-time (Minkowski space).
