Spacetime algebra as a powerful tool for electromagnetism

Publisher: arXiv 2014
Number of pages: 118
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.

Textbook on the theory of electrodynamics for advanced undergraduate or graduate students, and research workers. It is written from a classical field theoretical point of view, emphasising fundamental properties of the EM field.

This sophomore-level textbook introduces the student to classical electrodynamics and explains in simple terms the quantum theory of conducting substances. The presentation sacrifices mathematical detail in favor of pedagogigal efficiency.
