Physical Applications:

- Electro-magnetostatics
- Dispersion and diffraction E.M.

Examples of geometric algebras

- Complex Numbers G0,1= C
- Hamilton Quaternions G0,2= H
- Pauli Algebra G3
- Dirac Algebra G1,3

- inverse of a vector:
- reflections, rotations, Lorentz transform.
- integrals: Cauchy (≥ 2 d), Stokes’ theorem
Based on the idea of MULTIVECTORS:

and including lengths and angles:

Geometric or matrix product

- non commutative
- associative
- distributive
- closure:
- extend vector space
- unit = 1
- inverse (conditional)

In general, a’ = n a n, with n2 = 1

Inverse of multivector in G2Conjugate:

Generalizing

Geometric product in G3 :

Rotations:

e P/2 generates rotations with respect to

planedefined by bivector P

Inverse of multivector in G3defining Clifford conjugate:

- Generalizing:

Geometric Calculus (3d)

- is a vector differential operator acting on:
(r) – scalar field

E(r) – vector field

Maxwell’s Equation

- Maxwell’s multivector F = E +i c B
- current density paravector J = (ε0c)-1(cρ + j)
- Maxwell’s equation:

Fundamental Theorem of Calculus

- Euclidian case :
dkx = oriented volume, e.g. ê1 ê2 ê3 = i

dk-1x = oriented surface, e.g. ê1 ê2 = iê3

F (x)– multivector field, V – boundary of V

Example: divergence theorem

- d3x = i d, where d = |d3 x|
- d2 x = i nda , where da = |d2 x|
- F = v(r)

Green’s Theorem (Euclidian case )

- where the first order Green function is:

Cauchy’s theorem in n dimensions

- particular case : F = f y f = 0
where f (x) is a monogenic multivectorial

field: f = 0

Electromagnetic diffraction

- First order Helmholtz equation:
- Exact Huygens’ principle:
In the homogeneous case J = 0

Special relativity and paravectors in G3

- Paravector p = p0 + p
Examples of paravectors:

Lorentz transformations

Transform the paravector

p = p0 + p = p0 + p=+ p┴ into:

B p B = B2 (p0 + p=) + p┴

R p R† = p0 + p= + R2 p┴
