**Spacetime algebra as a powerful tool for electromagnetism**

by Justin Dressel, Konstantin Y. Bliokh, Franco Nori

**Publisher**: arXiv 2014**Number of pages**: 118

**Description**:

We present a comprehensive introduction to spacetime algebra that emphasizes its practicality and power as a tool for the study of electromagnetism. We carefully develop this natural (Clifford) algebra of the Minkowski spacetime geometry, with a particular focus on its intrinsic (and often overlooked) complex structure.
