    We require here various spinor identities, including the following: Open image in new window See, for exmaple, Pirni (1965), section 3, and Pentose (1968a) for standard expositions od spinor algebra. Proposition 2.1.2 appears in Penrose and MacCallum (1972), section 1.3.Google Scholar

    For treatments of the global geometry of compactified Minkowski space, see Penrose (1963), Penrose (1965b) and, especially, Penrose (1965a). A somewhat more streamlined treatment is outlined in Penrose (1968a). Also see the account given in Hawking and Ellis (1973).Google Scholar
