Product Description Review ' … by far the most comprehensive treatment in the literature of spinorial methods in general relativity … I would regard this new work as one whose acquisition should be given top priority by anyone working in either the classical or quantum theories of gravity.' Contemporary Physics ' … not only provides a highly readable account of spinor calculus that is unparalleled in its depth and thoroughness but also serves as a valuable source of reference for the numerous spinor and spinor-related formulae that arise in space-time physics.' New Scientist Book Description This volume introduces and systematically develops the calculus of 2-spinors. This is the first detailed exposition of this technique which leads not only to a deeper understanding of the structure of space-time but also provides shortcuts to some very tedious calculations. Many results are given here for the first time.
