This volume introduces and systematically develops the calculus of 2-spinors. This is the first detailed exposition of this technique which leads not only to a deeper understanding of the structure of space-time, but also provides shortcuts to some very tedious calculations. Many results are given here for the first time.
Reviews & endorsements
"...careful and comprehensive discussion virtually assures that it will become a standard reference..." ScienceSee more reviews
"...the book has come out just in the wake of realization that spinors may play an even more profound role in theoretical physics than they do today...very likely to become a classic." Nature
