Terminolgy question

  • Start date
I have been looking around the net and from what i can tell geometric algebra is a useful tool in some branches of physics, and is becoming more and more important as time goes by. I have also heard the term algebraic geometry used in connection with advanced undergraduate geometry courses.
is geometric algebra the same thing as algebraic geometry, and how does Clifford algebra relate to geometric algebra?
what are the suggested prerequisites for studying geometric algebra and Clifford algebra?
