Clifford Algebra: A visual introduction | slehar

november 2016 by joecamel

"Clifford Algebra, a.k.a. Geometric Algebra, is a most extraordinary synergistic confluence of a diverse range of specialized mathematical fields, each with its own methods and formalisms, all of which find a single unified formalism under Clifford Algebra. It is a unifying language for mathematics, and a revealing language for physics."

Oersted Medal Lecture 2002: Reforming the Mathematical Language of Physics

september 2016 by joecamel

"We can do better! Research on the design and use of

mathematical systems provides a guide for designing a unified mathematical language for the whole of physics that facilitates learning and enhances physical insight. This has produced a comprehensive language called Geometric Algebra, which I introduce with emphasis on how it simplifies and integrates classical and quantum physics."

How to Conquer Tensorphobia | Math ∩ Programming

june 2014 by joecamel

"This post is an attempt to bridge the gap between the elementary and advanced understandings of tensors. We’ll start with the elementary (axiomatic) approach, just to get a good feel for the objects we’re working with and their essential properties. Then we’ll transition to the “universal” mode of thought, with the express purpose of enlightening us as to why the properties are both necessary and natural."

MATH E-222 Abstract Algebra

december 2010 by joecamel

"Algebra is the language of modern mathematics. This course introduces students to that language through a study of groups, group actions, vector spaces, linear algebra, and the theory of fields." // Benedict Gross seems like a great lecturer! Course uses Artin's book "Algebra".
