Are spinors needed in modern theoretical physics as opposed to tensors? I have come across Penrose's book "Spinors and space-time". Does anybody know what mathematical prerequisites are needed to actually understand it? (at least volume 1) Can I manage to go through it with a good knowledge of real analysis and linear algebra and a very basic understanding of topology?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
