Book Description:

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. Twistors have, in recent years, attracted increasing attention as a mathematical tool and as a means of gaining new insights into the structure of physical laws. This volume also includes a comprehensive treatment of the conformal approach to spacetime infinity with results on generalrelativistic...
More DescriptionSpinor 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. Twistors have, in recent years, attracted increasing attention as a mathematical tool and as a means of gaining new insights into the structure of physical laws. This volume also includes a comprehensive treatment of the conformal approach to spacetime infinity with results on generalrelativistic mass and angular momentum, a detailed spinorial classification of the full spacetime curvature tensor, and an account of the geometry of null geodesics.
