# A Lecture Course in Geometric Algebra
The handouts on this page accompanied the lecture course *Physical
Applications of Geometric Algebra*, delivered as a Part III Minor
Option to final year physicists at the University of Cambridge in
1999. The handouts here should serve as a ueful introduction to
the range of applications of geometric algebra.
