Spinors and space-time

- R. Penrose, W. Rindler
- Physics
- 1984

In the two volumes that comprise this work Roger Penrose and Wolfgang Rindler introduce the calculus of 2-spinors and the theory of twistors, and discuss in detail how these powerful and elegant… Expand

A Generalized inverse for matrices

- R. Penrose
- Mathematics
- 1 July 1955

This paper describes a generalization of the inverse of a non-singular matrix, as the unique solution of a certain set of equations. This generalized inverse exists for any (possibly rectangular)… Expand

The Emperor's New Mind

- Michael Barr, R. Penrose
- Art
- 9 November 1989

Els cometes presenten en general un nucli brillant de dimensions reduides (uns quilbmetres), de forma irregular i que conte gairebe tota la massa, una cabellera al voltant del nucli i una cua (si es… Expand

An Approach to Gravitational Radiation by a Method of Spin Coefficients

- E. Newman, R. Penrose
- Mathematics
- 1 May 1962

A new approach to general relativity by means of a tetrad or spinor formalism is presented. The essential feature of this approach is the consistent use of certain complex linear combinations of… Expand

On Gravity's role in Quantum State Reduction

- R. Penrose
- Physics
- 1 May 1996

The stability of a quantum superposition of two different stationary mass distributions is examined, where the perturbing effect of each distribution on the space-time structure is taken into… Expand

Shadows of the Mind

- P. Hilton, R. Penrose
- Art
- 1994

This book attempts to take a firm grip on a corner of the slippery issue of consciousness. It is directly related to Roger Penrose's earlier, hugely successful work, The Emperor's New Mind. Although… Expand

Zero rest-mass fields including gravitation: asymptotic behaviour

- R. Penrose
- Mathematics, PhysicsProceedings of the Royal Society of London…
- 23 February 1965

A zero rest-mass field of arbitrary spin s determines, at each event in space-time, a set of 2s principal null directions which are related to the radiative behaviour of the field. These directions… Expand

The singularities of gravitational collapse and cosmology

- S. Hawking, R. Penrose
- MathematicsProceedings of the Royal Society of London. A…
- 27 January 1970

A new theorem on space-time singularities is presented which largely incorporates and generalizes the previously known results. The theorem implies that space-time singularities are to be expected if… Expand

Gravitational collapse and spacetime singularities

- R. Penrose
- Physics
- 18 January 1965

accompanied by a violent release of energy, possible in the form of gravitational radiation. The detailed mathematical discussion of such situations is difficult since the full complexity of general… Expand
