Spinor theory is an important tool in mathematical physics in particular in the context of conformal field theory and string theory. These lecture notes present a new way to introduce spinors by exploiting their intimate relationship to Clifford algebras. The presentation is detailed and mathematically rigorous. Not only students but also researchers will welcome this book for the clarity of its style and for the straightforward way it applies mathematical concepts to physical theory.
