Degenerate Clifford Algebras and Their Reperesentations

Şenay Bulut


In this study, we give an imbedding theorem for a degenerate Clifford algebra into non-degenerate one. By using the representations of non-degenerate Clifford algebra we develop a method for the representations of the degenerate Clifford algebras. We give some explicit constructions for lower dimensions.
