cartan {clifford} R Documentation

## Cartan map between clifford algebras

### Description

Cartan's map isomorphisms from $$Cl(p,q)$$ to $$Cl(p-4,q+4)$$ and $$Cl(p+4,q-4)$$

### Usage

cartan(C, n = 1)
cartan_inverse(C, n = 1)


### Arguments

 C Object of class clifford n Strictly positive integer

### Value

Returns an object of class clifford. The default value n=1 maps $$Cl(4,q)$$ to $$Cl(0,q+4)$$ (cartan()) and $$Cl(0,q)$$ to $$Cl(4,q-4)$$.

### Examples


a <- rcliff(d=7)   # Cl(4,3)
b <- rcliff(d=7)   # Cl(4,3)
signature(4,3)     # e1^2 = e2^2 = e3^2 = e4^2 = +1; e5^2 = e6^2=e7^2 = -1
ab <- a*b          # multiplication in Cl(4,3)

signature(0,7)   # e1^2 = ... = e7^2 = -1
cartan(a)*cartan(b) == cartan(ab) # multiplication in Cl(0,7); should be TRUE

signature(Inf)  # restore default
