This chapter is devoted to a presentation of conformal geometric algebra (CGA) targeted to the sort of applications dealt with in chapters 4 (robotics) and 5 (molecular geometry). This means that the ground space will be the Euclidean space E3 and that the algebra we will be working with is designed so that it can encode all conformal transformations of E3 in spinorial form. Except for noting that conformal means angle-preserving, we can defer the necessary precisions to the most convenient… 


Oriented Conformal Geometric Algebra
Abstract.In [16] Stolfi developed a complete theory of Oriented Projective Geometry. He showed that assigning meaning to the sign of an otherwise homogeneous representation of geometry could provide
A covariant approach to geometry using geometric algebra
Using the mathematical framework of conformal geometric algebra – a 5-dimensional representation of 3-dimensional space – is shown to provide an elegant covariant approach to geometry, thus enabling us to deal simply with the projective and non-Euclidean cases.

A universal model for conformal geometries of Euclidean, spherical and double-hyperbolic spaces
The study of relations among Euclidean, spherical and hyperbolic geometries dates back to the beginning of last century. The attempt to prove Euclid’s fifth postulate led C. F. Gauss to discover
