Editorial Reviews

Book Description

Infinite-dimensional Clifford algebras and their Fock representations originated in the quantum mechanical study of electrons. In this book the authors give a definitive account of the various Clifford algebras over a real Hilbert space and of their Fock representations. A careful consideration of the latter's transformation properties under Bogoliubov automorphisms leads to the restricted orthogonal group. From there, a study of inner Bogoliubov automorphisms enables the authors to construct infinite- dimensional spin groups.Apart from assuming a basic background in functional analysis and operator algebras, the presentation is self-contained with complete proofs, many of which offer a fresh perspective on the subject. The book will therefore appeal to a wide audience of graduate students and researchers in mathematics and mathematical physics.

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By M.J.Dupre'(mjdupre@yahoo.com) on February 3, 1999
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The authors present an exceptionally clear treatment of Clifford algebras, Clifford C*-algebras, and von Neumann Clifford algebras, their Fock representations and related developments. The proofs are concise and to the point.
