Geometric Algebra page - some links, talks and papers


Geometric Algebra (GA) is a mathematical system that provides a unified language for much of physics and mathematics.

It was developed originally by William Kingdon Clifford, and put into its modern form by David Hestenes, starting in the 1960s.

Chris Doran and I have written a book on 'Geometric Algebra for Physicists', published by Cambridge University Press.
