“Clifford Algebraic Symmetries in Physics”

  • Nikos Salingaros


This talk reviews some of the many appearances of Clifford algebras in Theoretical Physics. The full extent of the role of Clifford algebras is not easy to appreciate, since the various applications are disguised by an entirely distinct notation in each case. We propose that based on the almost universal application of the Clifford algebras, this is a mathematical scheme which is somehow intrinsic to the physical world.
