New foundations for classical mechanics
by David Hestenes
(
Book
)
52 editions published between 1986 and 2009 in English and held by 1,037 WorldCat member libraries worldwide "This book provides an introduction to geometric algebra as a unified language for physics and mathematics. It containes extensive applications to classical mechanics in a textbook format suitable for courses at an intermediate level. The text is supported by more than 200 diagrams to help develop geometrical and physical intuition. Besides covering the standard material for a course on the mechanics of particles and rigid bodies, the book introduces new, coordinate free methods for rotational dynamics and orbital mechanics, developing these subjects to a level well beyond that of other textbooks."BOOK JACKET
Clifford algebra to geometric calculus : a unified language for mathematics and physics
by David Hestenes
(
Book
)
27 editions published between 1984 and 1999 in English and Dutch and held by 538 WorldCat member libraries worldwide Geometric Calculus is a language for expressing and analyzing the full range of geometric concepts in mathematics. Clifford Algebra provides the grammar. Complex number, quaternions, matrix algebra, vector, tensor and spinor calculus and differential forms are integrated into a single comprehensive system. The geometric calculus developed in this book has the following features: a systematic development of definitions, concepts and theorems needed to apply the calculus easily and effectively to almost any branch of mathematics or physics; a formulation of linear algebra capable of details computations without matrices or coordinates; new proofs and treatments of canonical forms including an extensive discussion of spinor representations of rotations in Euclidean nspace; a new concept of differentiation which makes it possible to formulate calculus on manifolds and carry out complete calculations of such thinks as the Jacobian of a transformation without resorting to coordinates; a coordinatefree approach to differential geometry featuring a new quantity, the shape tensor, from which the curvature tensor can be computed without a connection; a formulation of integration theory based on a concept of directed measure, with new results including a generalization of Cauchy's integral formula to ndimension spaces and explicit integral formula for the inverse of a transformation; a new approach to Lie groups and Lie algebras.

Heuristics of electrodynamic quantum theory
(
Book
)
1 edition published in 1969 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide A new, physical interpretation of de Broglie waves is suggested. It is assumed that every elementary charged particle is the source, not only of a coulomb field, but also of a monochromatic radiation field with frequency determined by the de Broglie relation. On the basis of this single assumption, and with appeal only to general properties of electromagnetic fields, qualitative explanations are given for all the main features of quantum theory. (Author)
ENTROPY AND INDISTINGUISHABILITY
(
Book
)
1 edition published in 1969 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide It is argued that the principle of indistinguishability of identical particles is a necessary condition for consistency between experimental and statistical descriptions of a manyparticle system. Therefore, it is not a special feature of quantum theory, and its use is perfectly justified in classical statistical mechanics. (Author)
