If you have a question about this talk, please contact Eoin Devane. Geometric Algebra is a unifying mathematical framework: it follows the interpretation of Clifford’s own algebra as given by David Hestenes. Here we will take Conformal Geometric Algebra (CGA) to indicate a 5D space with a null structure from which we are able to model Euclidean space. One of the most attractive features of the CGA is the covariant approach to geometry that it provides. Rotations, translations, inversions and dilations are all ‘rotors’ in this algebra, taking the form of an exponentiated bivector. The talk will outline the CGA and show how it can be used in some real computer science and engineering applications.
