    The present paper is a rewrite of the report byH. E. Moses:The Spinor Transformation of Maxwell’s Equations, Report No. IMM-NYU 238, January, 1957, New York University, Institute of Mathematical Sciences, New York. The author’s attention has been drawn to reference (4) which has appeared in the meantime, where substantially the same form of Maxwell’s equations are given as in the present paper. However, the transformation properties are not discussed.MathSciNetCrossRefGoogle Scholar
