They literally replace reams of texts on complex numbers, quaternions, octonions, spinors, etc. They don't replace those concepts; and, for sure, if you want to learn quantum you're going to need them; but they make getting your head around them so much easier. One issue is that most of the "online" references are crap. MacDonald's presentation is a wonderful slow ramp: it starts with really basic linear algebra and then just slowly segue's into geometric algebra. I firmly believe that in years we just won't be teaching 'bare' linear algebra, complex, quaternions,

This textbook for the second year undergraduate linear algebra course presents a unified treatment of linear algebra and geometric algebra, while covering most of the usual linear algebra topics. Geometric algebra and its extension to geometric calculus simplify, unify, and generalize vast areas of mathematics that involve geometric ideas. Geometric algebra is an extension of linear algebra. The treatment of many linear algebra topics is enhanced by geometric algebra, for example, determinants and orthogonal transformations. And geometric algebra does much more, as it incorporates the complex, quaternion, and exterior algebras, among others. Geometric algebra and calculus provide a unified mathematical language for many areas of physics classical and quantum mechanics, electrodynamics, relativity , computer science graphics, robotics, computer vision , engineering, and other fields. This book can be used as a linear algebra text, without geometric algebra, as outlined in the preface.
Mathematically, a geometric algebra may be defined as the Clifford algebra of a vector space with a quadratic form. Clifford's contribution was to define a new product, the geometric product, that united the Grassmann and Hamilton algebras into a single structure. Adding the dual of the Grassmann exterior product the "meet" allows the use of the Grassmann—Cayley algebra , and a conformal version of the latter together with a conformal Clifford algebra yields a conformal geometric algebra CGA providing a framework for classical geometries. The scalars and vectors have their usual interpretation, and make up distinct subspaces of a GA. Bivectors provide a more natural representation of the pseudovector quantities in vector algebra such as oriented area, oriented angle of rotation, torque, angular momentum, electromagnetic field and the Poynting vector. A trivector can represent an oriented volume, and so on. Rotations and reflections are represented as elements.
This paper is an introduction to geometric algebra and geometric calculus, presented in the simplest way I could manage, without worrying too much about completeness or rigor. An understanding of linear algebra and vector calculus is presumed. This should be sufficient to read most of the paper. This is a preview of subscription content, access via your institution.

Alan Macdonald, Geometric Algebra :. Geometric algebra and its extension to geometric calculus unify, simplify, and generalize vast areas of mathematics that involve geometric ideas, including linear algebra, multivariable calculus, real analysis, complex analysis, and euclidean, noneuclidean, and projective geometry. They provide a unified mathematical language for physics classical and quantum mechanics, electrodynamics, relativity , the geometrical aspects of computer science e. Differential geometry, geometric algebra etc — geometry algebra. Differential forms formalism Clifford Algebra formalism References. Differential forms formalism Flanders, Differential forms Flanders is a wildly popular classic available for cheap used Frankel, the geometry of physics Frankel attempts to update Flanders, trading slightly improved pedagogy for slightly more physics focus.

Linear algebra is part of the standard undergraduate mathematics curriculum because it is of central importance in pure and applied mathematics. It was not always so. The wide acceptance of vector methods did not occur until early in the twentieth century.

Mathematics Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for people studying math at any level and professionals in related fields. It only takes a minute to sign up. The title of the question already says it all but I would like to add that I would really like the book to be more about geometric algebra than its applications : it should contain theorems' proofs. Just adding that I have never taken a course on geometric algebra. I'm a 2nd year engineering student, so a "beginner" book style will be very good!!!
Она подняла голову. Глаза ее были полны слез. - Прости меня, Дэвид, - прошептала. - Я… я не могу. Дэвид даже вздрогнул. Он смотрел в ее глаза, надеясь увидеть в них насмешливые искорки. Но их там не .

Старая электрическая сушилка для рук захватана грязными пальцами. Беккер остановился перед зеркалом и тяжело вздохнул. Обычно лучистые и ясные, сейчас его глаза казались усталыми, тусклыми. Сколько я уже тут кручусь. Однако считать ему не хотелось.
