About this book

This text is a self-contained, comprehensive treatment of the tensor and spinor calculus of space-time manifolds with as few technicalities as correct treatment allows. Both the physical and geometrical motivation of all concepts are discussed, helping the reader to go through the technical details in a confident manner. Several physical theories are discussed and developed beyond standard treatment using results in the book. Both the traditional "index" and modern "coordinate-free" notations are used side-by-side in the book, making it accessible to beginner graduate students in mathematics and physics. The methods developed offer new insights into standard areas of physics, such as classical mechanics or electromagnetism, and takes readers to the frontiers of knowledge of spinor calculus.
