We explore the three separate isomorphisms that link together simple spinors, null vectors and the orthogonal group O(n) and exploit them to look back at these arguments from a unified viewpoint.

The Clifford algebra of $R^{n,n}$ and the Boolean Satisfiability Problem

We formulate a Boolean algebra in the set of idempotents of Clifford algebra Cl(R) and within this frame we examine different formulations of the Boolean Satisfiability Problem in Clifford algebra.



The Boolean SATisfiability Problem and the orthogonal group $O(n)$

We explore the relations between the Boolean Satisfiability Problem with $n$ literals and the orthogonal group $O(n)$ and show that all solutions lie in the compact and disconnected real manifold of

Fock space description of simple spinors

Cartan’s simple—often called pure—spinors corresponding to even‐dimensional complex vector spaces are defined in terms of the associated maximal totally null planes. Their geometrical properties are

There are several topics of Clifford algebra where discrete and continuous worlds are deeply intertwined, one for all the Cartan theorem that expresses continuous automorphisms by a succession of

The Theory of Spinors

The concept of a “spinor” emerged from the work of E. Cartan on the representations of simple Lie algebras. However, it was not until Dirac employed a special case in the construction of his

On spinors transformations

We begin showing that for even dimensional vector spaces V all automorphisms of their Clifford algebras are inner. So all orthogonal transformations of V are restrictions to V of inner automorphisms

On Spinor Transformations

We begin observing that, if a vector space $V$ is even dimensional, all automorphisms of its Clifford algebra are inner. So all orthogonal transformations of $V$ can be seen as restrictions to $V$ of
