Conformal Geometry of the Supercotangent and Spinor Bundles
We study the actions of local conformal vector fields $${X \in {\rm conf}(M,g)}$$ on the spinor bundle of (M, g) and on its classical counterpart: the supercotangent bundle $${\mathcal{M}}$$ of (M,
Real spinor bundles and real Lipschitz structures
We obtain the topological obstructions to existence of a bundle of irreducible real Clifford modules over a pseudo-Riemannian manifold $(M,g)$ of arbitrary dimension and signature and prove that
Holomorphic family of Dirac-Coulomb Hamiltonians in arbitrary dimension
We study massless 1-dimensional Dirac-Coulomb Hamiltonians, that is, operators on the half-line of the form Dω,λ := [ − x −∂x ∂x −λ−ω x ] . We describe their closed realizations in the sense of the

We define spin frames, with the aim of extending spin structures from the category of (pseudo-)Riemannian manifolds to the category of spin manifolds with a fixed signature on them, though with no
Geometric algebra techniques in flux compactifications (II)
A bstractWe study constrained generalized Killing spinors over the metric cone and cylinder of a (pseudo-)Riemannian manifold, developing a toolkit which can be used to investigate certain problems

Abstract The purpose of this article is to demonstrate how to use the mathematics of spinor bundles and their category. We have used the methods of principle fiber bundles obey thorough solid
Nilpotent symmetries as a mechanism for Grand Unification
Abstract In the classic Coleman-Mandula no-go theorem which prohibits the unification of internal and spacetime symmetries, the assumption of the existence of a positive definite invariant scalar
Tensor- and spinor-valued random fields with applications to continuum physics and cosmology
In this paper, we review the history, current state-of-art, and physical applications of the spectral theory of two classes of random functions. One class consists of homogeneous and isotropic random
Four-vector vs. four-scalar representation of the Dirac wave function
In a Minkowski spacetime, one may transform the Dirac wave function under the spin group, as one transforms coordinates under the Poincare group. This is not an option in a curved spacetime.


Spin Spaces, Lipschitz Groups, and Spinor Bundles
It is shown that every bundle Σ → M of complex spinormodules over the Clifford bundle Cl(g) of a Riemannian space(M, g) with local model (V, h)is associated with an lpin(‘Lipschitz’) structure on M,
Odd-dimensional Riemannian spaces that are non-orientable, but have a pin structure, require the consideration of the twisted adjoint representation of the corresponding pin group. It is shown here
Spinors and the Dirac operator on hypersurfaces. I. General theory
It is shown that a hypersurface immersed isometrically into the Euclidean space Rn+1, where n=2ν or 2ν+1, has a pin structure such that the associated bundle of 2ν‐component spinors is trivial. This
