A good friend of mine recently discovered some of the fun things
you can do with complex numbers if you're using them to represent
points in the plane. Shortly thereafter, I re-read a passage by Tony
Smith about
why one
should be interested in Clifford algebras. Tony Smith's passage
included all of the fun one can have with the complex plane and
extends it to three, four, five, and more dimensions. I thought, I
should segue from the complex numbers in the plane to Clifford
algebras to quaternions in 3-space to Clifford algebras again in a
series of posts on my
website.
I have posted four articles in that series so far:

This place is so inactive! Nobody ever comes here anymore ?Wed, 18 Jan 2006 09:24:42 GMT
Firstly I'm new to this community, but I love Algebraic Geomtery immensly as you can see from my userpic/logo, Grothendieck's Motives letter to Serre. (That should be familiar to most of you) Anyway I was wondering if we could add a chat room to the community for live discussions, like yahoo perhaps that way we can discuss the answers for questions posted here and resulting answers with refer to it. Would help understand the problem more clearly.Thu, 22 Sep 2005 04:06:59 GMT
Hello, folks. I hope that I'm in the right group to be asking this. I am no mathematician, although I do know somewhat more than the average bear and can read an equation.Mon, 07 Jun 2004 18:24:31 GMT
Hey all, I just joined the community. I'm Doug, an undergrad at Dartmouth College. I've spent most of time on physics instead of math, but next year I'm taking algebra and then in the spring I get a chance to study geometric algebra or twistors (one of the two topics) which is exciting. I suppose that's enough of an introduction, these things are generally doomed to be boring anyway.Tue, 21 May 2002 01:44:53 GMT
I'm at the 6th International Conference on Clifford Algebras and their Applications. Here are some photos from the event.Fri, 12 Apr 2002 15:55:22 GMT
This month's lead article in Bulletin (New Series) of the American Mathematical Society is a 60-page article by John Baez on Octonions.

Every Friday after work, a mathematician goes down to the bar, sits in the second-to-last seat, turns to the last seat, which is empty, and asks a girl who isn't there if he can buy her a drink.Thu, 29 Nov 2001 23:17:53 GMT
December is the month for reading. Have people made progress on the first article for this group. I've run across a few books which work through using Clifford Algebras for E&M and Mechanics. I just ordered one from Amazon.com - it's Causality, Electromagnetic Induction, and Gravitation: A Different Approach to the Theory of Electromagnetic and Gravitational Fields, 2nd edition by Oleg D. Jefimenko.Wed, 31 Oct 2001 18:58:05 GMT
Thanks Pat. Things have been pretty busy here with my quest for a new apartment. I'm glad you've greated this group.Wed, 31 Oct 2001 17:08:09 GMT
So, what books out there best present Geometric Algebras?Wed, 31 Oct 2001 16:25:58 GMT
