Abstract

A classification scheme is presented for the finite multiplicative group generated by the gamma matrices associated with a given Clifford algebra. This group reflects the periodicities observed in n‐dimensional spinors, and its representations and other properties are studied, thus highlighting the dependence on the number of spacelike and timelike vectors. The reality of the representations is examined and tabulated; application is made to the imposition of Majorana and Weyl conditions.
