# Geometric Algebra for Physicists

@inproceedings{Doran2003GeometricAF, title={Geometric Algebra for Physicists}, author={Chris Doran and Anthony N. Lasenby}, year={2003} }

Geometric algebra is a powerful mathematical language with applications across a range of subjects in physics and engineering. This book is a complete guide to the current state of the subject with early chapters providing a self-contained introduction to geometric algebra. Topics covered include new techniques for handling rotations in arbitrary dimensions, and the links between rotations, bivectors and the structure of the Lie groups. Following chapters extend the concept of a complex…
