translated from French
The most important book that I have ever read
Masterpiece based on the original lecture notes of Cartan
Review of theory of spinors The author begins by defining the spinor as a form of a square root of a 3 dimensional nullvector.Scalars, vectors and tensors are then described by theirproperties under simple geometrical transformations such as reflection androtation.The author then represents vectors as 2x2 matrices.Thetransformational properties of spinors are defined by their relation tovectors and tensors under these same simple transformations.The authorthen shows how spinors are useful for finding the irreduciblerepresentations of the rotation group.These concepts are then extended tohigher dimensional spinors.Specific applications are shown for Laplace'sequation, the Dirac equation and to general relativity. The is anintroductory, inexpensive, brief and easy to read book.The book alsocovers a fair amount of ground.It is an excellent first book for thesubject.It does not contain modern developments in the field or someelements of the current notational system for representing spinors.Yet,for me it was the first book that gave me a sense of really understandingthe significance of the Dirac equation and quantum physic's concept ofspin.
