Clifford algebras with inverse?

  1. Sep 21, 2010 #1
    Hello,
    Let's assume we have a Clifford algebra of one of the following two kinds: [tex]\mathcal{C}\ell_{n,0}[/tex] or [tex]\mathcal{C}\ell_{0,n}[/tex].

    Is it possible to say which algebras will admit a multiplicative inverse for each multivector element?

    [tex]Cl_{0,1}=\bf{C}[/tex]
    [tex]Cl_{0,2}=\bf{H}[/tex]

    See the table on p. 11 in Atiyah, Bott, Shapiro "http://www.dleex.com/read/7878" [Broken]"
