The topic today in this group theory thread is “sixtors and representations of the Lorentz group”. Consider the group of proper orthochronous Lorentz transformations and the transformation law of the electromagnetic tensor . The components of this antisymmetric tensor can … Continue reading

The sixtor or 6D Riemann-Silberstein vector is a complex-valued quantity up to one multiplicative constant and it can be understood as a bivector field in Clifford algebras/geometric calculus/geometric algebra. But we are not going to go so far in this … Continue reading

In the next group theory threads we are going to study the relationship between Special Relativity, electromagnetic fields and the complex group . There is a close interdependence of the following three concepts: The classical electromagnetic fields and can be … Continue reading
