Clifford Algebras and their Associated Geometry"
Abstract: Graded Clifford algebras are
non-commutative algebras that have
been known since at least the
1980s, and one can read off certain
properties of such an
algebra from certain commutative geometric
associated to the algebra. Recently, T. Cassidy and the
introduced a generalization of such an algebra, called a
skew Clifford algebra, and they found that most of the results
concerning graded Clifford algebras can be extended to graded
Clifford algebras, provided the appropriate non-commutative
data is defined. In this talk, the main focus will be
algebra-geometry correspondence, examples and some
on the subject.
A map of UTA may be found at
and directions to UTA are on that website.
Note that PKH is the
triangular building in the central-campus region of the map.
Select Pickard Hall from the building selector. PKH is next to the
``garage'' & is on Nedderman Dr between Planatarium Place (aka
College St) & West St. West St is one-way northbound between W
Mitchell St and 3rd St. Parking is available in the nearby (East
and SE of PKH) parking lots with a UTA permit (but many people
park there late on Fridays with no permit).
There are a few metered parking spots on the East side of Pickard
Hall on West St. Visitor (free), & metered, parking is
available by Davis Hall (marked DH in SW part of the submap). A
parking garage (expensive) is nextdoor to PKH (use West St to get
to it). Note that if heading south on Cooper, then no left turn is
allowed to Nedderman Dr.
Note that PKH 304 is on the 3rd floor
of PKH; turn right out of elevator on 3rd floor.
