### 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)
