Thesis, University of Cambridge (1994). Geometric Algebra and its Application to Mathematical Physics Ph.D. This can be generalized to establish directional uncertainty principles in Clifford geometric algebras with quaternion subalgebras. It provided a way to understand the complex mathematical objects arising from the study of differential equations in physics by converting the difficult problems in geometry and topology into more amenable algebra. Geometric algebra, or Clifford algebra, is a powerful mathematical language that contains vector algebra as a subsystem. What has come to be called Geometric Algebra is a school of thought among some physicists who amplify the good use of Clifford algebra in treatments of basic classical mechanics and quantum mechanics.

The case of most interest in physics is V=\mathbf R^4, (\cdot,\cdot) the Minkowski inner product of signature (3,1). McNamara, “Oblique superposition of two elliptically polarized lightwaves using geometric algebra: is energy–momentum conserved?,” J. The theory of Clifford algebras for real vector spaces V is rather complicated. It's a bold undertaking to create a unified mathematical language based on Clifford algebra that aims for optimal simplicity when expressing physics. 'Algebra, Geometry and Physics'.
