This book on the theory of three-dimensional spinors and their applications fills an important gap in the literature. It gives an introductory treatment of spinors.

From the reviews:

"Gathers much of what can be done with 3-D spinors in an easy-to-read, self-contained form designed for applications that will supplement many available spinor treatments. The book...should be appealing to graduate students and researchers in relativity and mathematical physics." --MATHEMATICAL REVIEWS

MEDIA REVIEWS

"In summary...the book gathers much of what can be done with 3-D spinors in an easy-to-read, self-contained form designed for applications that will supplement many available spinor treatments. The book...should be appealing to graduate students and researchers in relativity and mathematical physics."

-Mathematical Reviews

"The presnet book provides an easy-to-read and unconventional presentation of the spinor formalism for three-dimensional spaces with a definite or indefinite metric...Following a nice and descriptive introduction chapters 2-4 are devoted to spin-weighted functions and their applications, while chapters 5 and 6 collect all the standard material on spinor algebra and spinor analysis respectively. The final chapter contains some applications of the formalism to general relativity." ---Monatshefte fur Mathematik
