outdated, and the author may already know the

answers. LM]

I am a math student that has come across Witten's relatively new

Twistor String Theory. I found the discussions of Twistor projective

space very stimulating, as it seems these are extensions of complex

projective space, e.g., CP^3. There are various constructions of such

projective spaces, including the matrix representation as primitive

idempotent operators. In the case of CP^3, for instance, points can be

obtained as 4x4 complex primitive idempotents (projections onto

one-dimensional subspaces).

Now I was wondering, since CP^3 is a Twistor projective space, which

can be given a matrix representation, does there exist a corresponding

Twistor Matrix Theory? If so, where can I learn more?

Any help and corrections are appreciated. ^^
