Chisholm's Clifford Algebra book Mar 29, 2000
This book and Dietrich's more recent book (reviewed by me in these reviews), together with volumes (edited) by Bayliss, Porteous, Okubo, Hestenes, and Benn, constitute a "minimum complete set" for understanding Clifford algebras and their applications to physics, although most researchers will want to supplement them with journal papers. Chisholm was one of the first to launch the new Clifford algebra revival that has been a major trend of the last dozen years. His selection of materials and papers in his volume is outstanding. His work subsequently expanded in numerous journal papers, of which he was kind enough to send me ten outstanding papers with his colleague R. Farwell. Three of the main centers of research in Clifford algebras are Great Britain (Chisholm, Farwell, etc.), Canada (Benn, etc.), the Eastern USA (Okubo and others), although Pezzaglia in California is "holding the fort alone" quite well. To repeat my advice in my reviews of other Clifford algebra and relativity and quantum theory books, the reader who does not have enough mathematical background should still obtain these volumes and consider hiring a tutor or consultant to translate the mathematics into ordinary English or an approximation thereof. To fail to understand Clifford algebras and their relatives is to fail to keep up with one of the most innovative research fields in the world.
