Students, staff, and faculty are invited to learn and study "The Fundamental Theorem of Geometric Calculus on a Manifold" at 6:30 p.m. Friday, February 25, 2011 in ST 301 on the Takoma Park/Silver Spring Campus. ST is the Charlene Nunley, Student Service Center, 7625 Fenton Street, Silver Spring, MD 20912 on the Takoma Park/Silver Spring Campus of Montgomery College.
The "Fundamental Theorem of Geometric Calculus on a Manifold" may be found on page 83 section 5.5 of the current 101-page study guide at URL: http://montgomerycollege.edu/Departments/planet/planet/Numerical_Relativity/bookGA.pdf.
The first undergraduate text on "Linear and Geometric Algebra" by Alan Macdonald is now out (see URL: http://faculty.luther.edu/~macdonal/laga/ it cost less than $30 from Amazon.com).
This undergraduate text will add to the three graduate-level texts:
1) <i>Geometric Algebra for Physicist</i> by Chris Doran and Anthony Lasenby at Cambridge University see URL: http://www.mrao.cam.ac.uk/~clifford
2) <i>Geometric Algebra for Computer Science, an object-oriented approach to Geometry</i> by Leo Dorst, Daniel Fontijne, and Stephen Mann see URL: http://www.geometricalgebra.net
3) <i>Geometric Algebra and Applications to Physics</i> by Venzo De Sabbata and Bidyut Kumar see URL: http://ebookee.org/Geometric-Algebra-and-Applications-to-Physics-Taylor-and-Francis-_273120.html
A group of students, staff, and faculty have been studying geometric/clifford algebra since 2007. Come and join us. It is alright to be confused and ask questions. Please see the group's URL at http://montgomerycollege.edu/Departments/planet/planet/Numerical_Relativity/Cliff.html.
If you have had the first course in calculus or beyond and are interested in learning some new mathematics, then this group is for you. We order some Chinese food to be delivered, eat together, socialize some, and then study.
Harold Williams is the host. Coffee and tea are in the room for free, and employed people pay for their own food.
