A discrete analogue of the Dirac equation in the Hestenes form is constructed by introduction the Clifford product on the space of discrete forms. We discuss the relation between the discrete Dirac-K\"{a}hler equation and a discrete Hestenes equation. 
A Discrete Dirac–Kähler Equation Using a Geometric Discretisation Scheme
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
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 discrete
Discrete versions of some Dirac type equations and plane wave solutions
A discrete version of the plane wave solution to some discrete Dirac type equations in the spacetime algebra is established. The conditions under which a discrete analogue of the plane wave solution
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 states


On the chirality of a discrete Dirac-Kahler equation
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 build
A discrete model of the Dirac-Kähler equation
We construct a new discrete analogue of the Dirac–Kahler equation in which some key geometric aspects of the continuum counterpart are captured. We describe a discrete Dirac–Kahler equation in the
Dirac-type tensor equations
We prove that D. Hestenes' equation, M. Riesz' equation, and some other equations, which are closely connected to the Dirac equation for an electron, can be considered as tensor equations. The
Comment on `Dirac theory in spacetime algebra'
In contrast to formulations of the Dirac theory by Hestenes and by the present author, the formulation recently presented by Joyce (Joyce W P 2001 J. Phys. A: Math. Gen. 34 1991-2005) is equivalent
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 topological
The Dirac equation is expressed entirely in terms of geometrical quantities by providing a geometrical interpretation for the (−1)½ which appears explicitly in the Dirac equation. In the modification
