Conformal Groups in Geometry and Spin Structures (Progress in Mathematical Physics #50) (Hardcover)
Conformal groups play a key role in geometry and spin structures. This book provides a self-contained overview of the role of conformal groups in geometry and mathematical physics. It features a careful development of the material, from the basics of Clifford algebras to more advanced topics. Each chapter covers a specific aspect of conformal groups and conformal spin geometry. All major concepts are introduced and followed by detailed descriptions and definitions, and a comprehensive bibliography and index round out the work.
Rich in exercises that are accompanied by full proofs and many hints, the book will be ideal as a course text or self-study volume for senior undergraduates and graduate students. Its scope and clarity will also appeal to researchers in mathematics and physics.
