M.E. Horn lecture: About the Relations between inner and outer Products of Geometric Algebra (German), 8 Mar. 2013, Muenster


Martin Erik Horn (Berlin) will give a lecture at the GDM-Jahrestagung (Annual Conference of the Society of Didactics of Mathematics) at the University of Muenster, Germany.

Title: Zur Beziehung zwischen inneren und aeusseren Produkten in der Geometrischen Algebra (About the Relations between inner and outer Products of Geometric Algebra)

Time: Friday, 8. March 2013, 11:15 – 11:50 h,
Venue: Westfaelische Wilhelms-Universitaet Muenster, Fuerstenberghaus, Domplatz 20-22, Room F33

Abstract:
Die Geometrische Algebra bietet die Chance, algebraischen und geometrischen Beschreibungen einen gemeinsamen Rahmen zu geben. Als didaktisch zentral erweist sich die Zerlegung des geometrischen Produktes. Anhand von alternativen Zerlegungsmoeglichkeiten koennen innere und aeussere Produkte hinterfragt und so didaktisch besser zugaenglich werden.

Englisch translation of the abstract: Geometric Algebra offers the opportunity to give algebraic and geometric descriptions a common and didactically uniting frame. The decomposition of the geometric product proves to be central with respect to this. By means of different, alternative decompositions the inner and outer products can be analysed und modelled in a didactically accessible way.

(The lecture will be given in German.)
