Item description for Theory of Spinors: An Introduction by Moshe Carmeli & Shimon Malin...

Spinors are used extensively in physics. It is widely accepted that they are more fundamental than tensors, and the easy way to see this is through the results obtained in general relativity theory by using spinors - results that could not have been obtained by using tensor methods only.

The foundation of the concept of spinors is groups; spinors appear as representations of groups. This textbook expounds the relationship between spinors and representations of groups. As is well known, spinors and representations are both widely used in the theory of elementary particles.

The authors present the origin of spinors from representation theory, but nevertheless apply the theory of spinors to general relativity theory, and part of the book is devoted to curved space-time applications.

Based on lectures given at Ben Gurion University, this textbook is intended for advanced undergraduate and graduate students in physics and mathematics, as well as being a reference for researchers.

More About Moshe Carmeli & Shimon Malin

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Moshe Carmeli is Albert Einstein Emeritus Professor of Theoretical Physics at Ben Gurion University in Israel. He is the author of numerous research articles and texts, such as Group Theory and General Relativity and Classical Fields. He is a Fellow of the American Physical Society and a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Sciences, and has been the President of the Israel Physical Society. He has spent many years in the United States doing research and teaching. Among the people he worked with are C.N. Yang at the State University of New York, Stony Brook and Abdus Salam at the International Center for Theoretical Physics, Trieste. Much of his efforts in latest years were devoted to develop a new general relativity theory that is based not on the propagation of light as the starting point in Einstein's theory, but on the expansion of the Universe, thus obtaining a space-velocity theory that is later on extended to include the time dimension, making it a five-dimensional Brane World theory.

Moshe Carmeli was born in 1933.
