Clifford algebras and spinors

by Ivan Todorov

Document info: Pages 26, Figures 0.

Expository notes on Clifford algebras and spinors with a detailed discussion of Majorana, Weyl, and Dirac spinors. The paper is meant as a review of background material, needed, in particular, in now fashionable theoretical speculations on neutrino masses. It has a more mathematical flavour than the over twenty-six-year-old {\it Introduction to Majorana masses} and includes historical notes and biographical data on past participants in the story.
