Encyclopedia of Gamma Matrix Representations?

  1. Oct 19, 2012 #1
    Hello, I was just curious if anyone knew of a single place with a list of many different gamma matrix representations, I haven't been able to find what I want by just searching google. In particular, I'm looking for a representation of the 5+1 dimensional Clifford algera. In other dimensions it's possible to choose a representation where C=γ_0, and I was wondering if this is possible for the 5+1 dimensional case I'm working with, as it would make my algebra much easier.

    You want a Majorana representation, right? Is this any help?

    Thanks, it doesn't answer my specific question, but the representation they give is a little nicer than the one I was working with anyways for my purposes. I appreciate it!
