Discrete models of the Dirac–Kähler equation and the Dirac equation in the Hestenes form are discussed. A discrete version of the plane wave solutions to a discrete analogue of the Hestenes equation is established. 
A Discrete Version of Plane Wave Solutions of the Dirac Equation in the Joyce Form
We construct a discrete version of the plane wave solution to a discrete Dirac-Kähler equation in the Joyce form. A geometric discretisation scheme based on both forward and backward differenceExpand
Chiral Properties of Discrete Joyce and Hestenes Equations
This paper concerns the question of how chirality is realized for discrete counterparts of the Dirac-K\"{a}hler equation in the Hestenes and Joyce forms. It is shown that left and right chiral statesExpand


Discrete Dirac-Kähler equation and its formulation in algebraic form
A relationship between the discrete Dirac-Kahler equation and discrete analogues of some Dirac type equations in the geometric spacetime algebra is discussed. We show that a solution of the discreteExpand

We discuss a discrete analogue of the Dirac-Kahler equation in which chiral properties of the continual counterpart are captured. We pay special attention to a discrete Hodge star operator. To buildExpand
Solutions for the Klein–Gordon and Dirac Equations on the Lattice Based on Chebyshev Polynomials

Homology theory of lattice fermion doubling
Abstract I give a general discussion of the phenomenon of spectrum degeneracy in transcribing continuum field equations to the lattice, using concepts of homology theory. This leads to a topologicalExpand
A conformal group approach to the Dirac–Kähler system on the lattice
Starting from the representation of the (n − 1) + n − dimensional Lorentz pseudo-sphere on the projective space PRn,n, we propose a method to derive a class of solutions underlying to a Dirac–KahlerExpand
We formulate Dirac–Kahler fermion action by introducing a new Clifford product with noncommutative differential form on a lattice. Hermiticity of the Dirac–Kahler action requires to choose theExpand
