Description

Abstract

Geometric algebra, or Clifford algebra, is a powerful mathematical language that contains vector algebra as a subsystem. It has applications across a range of subjects in physics and engineering, and is well suited to symbolic and numeric computations using Mathematica because of its very regular structure. A framework for calculations in the geometric algebra and calculus of three-dimensional space and four-dimensional spacetime is described. Examples are given of its use and application in computational electrodynamics.
