I'm doing a course which assumes knowledge of Group Theory - unfortunately I don't have very much.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Can someone please explain this statement to me (particularly the bits in bold):

"there is only onenon-trivial irreducible representationof the Cliford algebra,up to conjugacy"

FYI The Clifford algebra is just the the relationship between gamma matrices:

[tex][\gamma_\mu,\gamma_\nu]=2\eta_{\nu\mu}[/tex]

where [..] is the anticommutator rather than the commutator
