Learn a bit more about triality of SO

  1. Mar 10, 2010 #1
    I would like to learn a bit more about triality of SO (8) as discussed in this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SO%288%29" [Broken].

    Especially the article says:
    What do they mean by outer automorphism? How does this automorphism connect the three representations? What is meant by vector representation for the Spin(8), has a Spin group not only spinor representations?

    thank you
