This book provides a self-contained overview of the role of conformal groups in geometry and mathematical physics. It features a careful development of the material, from the basics of Clifford algebras to more advanced topics. Each chapter covers a specific aspect of conformal groups and conformal spin geometry. All major concepts are introduced and followed by detailed descriptions and definitions, and a comprehensive bibliography and index round out the work. Rich in exercises that are accompanied by full proofs and many hints, the book will be ideal as a course text or self-study volume for senior undergraduates and graduate students.
