The Many Faces of Maxwell, Dirac and Einstein Equations: A Clifford Bundle Approach (Lecture Notes in Physics Book 922) 2nd Edition


This book is an exposition of the algebra and calculus of differential
forms, of the Clifford and Spin-Clifford bundle formalisms, and of vistas to a
formulation of important concepts of differential geometry indispensable for an
in-depth understanding of space-time physics.

The formalism discloses the hidden geometrical nature of spinor fields.
Maxwell, Dirac and Einstein fields are shown to have representatives by objects
of the same mathematical nature, namely sections of an appropriate Clifford
bundle. This approach reveals unity in diversity and suggests relationships
that are hidden in the standard formalisms and opens new paths for research.

This thoroughly revised second edition also adds three new chapters: on the Clifford
bundle approach to the Riemannian or semi-Riemannian differential geometry of
branes; on Komar currents in the context of the General Relativity theory; and
an analysis of the similarities and main differences between Dirac, Majorana
and ELKO spinor fields.
The exercises with solutions, the
comprehensive list of mathematical symbols, and the list of acronyms and
abbreviations are provided for self-study for students as well as for classes.

From the reviews of the first
edition:

“The text is written in a very
readable manner and is complemented with plenty of worked-out exercises which
are in the style of extended examples. … their book could also serve as a
textbook for graduate students in physics or mathematics." (Alberto
Molgado, Mathematical Reviews, 2008 k)
