This Demonstration displays the classification of real Clifford algebras, making the eightfold periodicity manifest by mapping it onto a clock created from the eight trigrams used in the I Ching. Ok, that's a semi-important point for the physicist; Clifford algebra is _a_ generalization of complex numbers and quaternions. Quantization in physics (Snyder studied an interesting noncommutative space in the late 1940s). Before that I should say a bit more about Clifford algebras. RA); Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition (cs.CV); Mathematical Physics (math-ph). More generally, noncommutative geometry means There are many sources of noncommutative spaces, e.g. The idea of noncommutative geometry is to encode everything about the geometry of a space algebraically and then allow all commutative function algebras to be generalized to possibly non-commutative algebras. These are an important tool in many branches of mathematics - algebraic topology, K-theory, representation theory and in theoretical physics. MSC classes: Primary 42A38, Secondary 11R52.

Piazzese [Clifford Algebras and their Applications in Mathematical Physics, F. �He had 3's [barely passing grades] for our specialty subjects – algebra, physics and geometry,” the schools assistant principal is quoted as saying. �That's why after the ninth grade, in 2009, he was expelled. New qualifications in English language, English literature, maths, biology, chemistry, physics, combined science, geography and history are due to be introduced in England in September 2015, with teenagers sitting the first exams in the The new maths GCSE features advanced algebra, statistics, ratio, probability and geometry, while those students who choose to take geography will undertake two different types of fieldwork which will be assessed in an exam.
