Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The typical representation of the Dirac gamma matrices are designed for the +--- metric. For example

/gamma^0 = [1 & 0 \\ 0 & -1] , /gamma^i = [0 & /sigma^i \\ - /sigma^i & 0]

this corresponds to the metric +---

Does anyone know a representation of the gamma matrices for -+++?

Can you refer me to a published article or text?

Thank you!
