Book Description:

In the two volumes that comprise this work Roger Penrose and Wolfgang Rindler introduce the calculus of 2spinors and the theory of twistors, and discuss in detail how these powerful and elegant methods may be used to elucidate the structure and properties of spacetime. In volume 1, Twospinor calculus and relativistic fields, the calculus of 2spinors is introduced and developed. Volume 2, Spinor and twistor methods in spacetime geometry, introduces the theory of twistors, and...
More DescriptionIn the two volumes that comprise this work Roger Penrose and Wolfgang Rindler introduce the calculus of 2spinors and the theory of twistors, and discuss in detail how these powerful and elegant methods may be used to elucidate the structure and properties of spacetime. In volume 1, Twospinor calculus and relativistic fields, the calculus of 2spinors is introduced and developed. Volume 2, Spinor and twistor methods in spacetime geometry, introduces the theory of twistors, and studies in detail how the theory of twistors and 2spinors can be applied to the study of spacetime. This work will be of great value to all those studying relativity, differential geometry, particle physics and quantum field theory from beginning graduate students to experts in these fields.
