Geometry Matrices and wedge product concepts needed

  1. Feb 16, 2015 #1
    I want to learn clifford and grassmannian algebras. I need to be taken from mostly a beginners point, and from a place of matrices only in general terms, and years since use.

    ANybody up for it? I am a software developer, so not at the bottom of any learning curve.

    Look at this book: https://sites.google.com/site/winitzki/linalg
    It does linear algebra with a basis free approach. So it will make full use of tensors and wedge products. It doesn't do clifford or grassmannian algebras though (well he does, but he doesn't identify them as such), but it's a nice preparation.

    I will start with it, but I may have basic questions i need to ask, as I learned a lot very unconventionally. So there are holes in my knowledge all over.
