Geometric (Clifford) algebra and its applications
In this Master of Science Thesis I introduce geometric algebra both from the traditional geometric setting of vector spaces, and also from a more combinatorial view which simplifies common relations

Twistors in Geometric Algebra
Abstract.Twistors are re-interpreted in terms of geometric algebra as 4-d spinors with a position dependence. This allows us to construct their properties as observables of a quantum system. The

In this article we draw attention to spinors, both in space and in spacetime, and advocate the approach of [5], in which they are regarded as elements of the even subalgebra of the real Clifford
Two-State Quantum Systems Revisited: a Geometric Algebra Approach
We revisit the topic of two-state quantum systems using Geometric Algebra (GA) in three dimensions $\mathcal G_3$. In this description, both the quantum states and Hermitian operators are written as
The five-dimensional Dirac equation in the theory of algebraic spinors
The Dirac equation is considered in five-dimensional spaces with signatures (2,3), (4,1) and (0,5). The algebraic spinor formalism with the application of fermionic variables is used as the basis of
On Computable Geometric Expressions in Quantum Theory
Geometric Algebra and Calculus are mathematical languages that encode fundamental geometric relations that theories of physics must respect, and eliminate from our vocabulary those they do not. We

Scalar products of spinors and an extension of Brauer-Wall groups
The automorphism groups of scalar products of spinors are determined. Spinors are considered as elements of minimal left ideals of Clifford algebras on quadratic modules, e.g., on orthogonal spaces.

It is shown that every Lie algebra can be represented as a bivector algebra; hence every Lie group can be represented as a spin group. Thus, the computational power of geometric algebra is available
