This book has a parent, Ian R. Porteous’ earlier book on Topological Geometry. It extends the study on Clifford algebras, spin groups, Cayley algebra and the triality of Spin(8). As a new topic it contains a study of the conformal groups by the Vahlen matrices... The central theme in the present book is the classification of the reversion and conjugation anti-involutions of the Clifford algebras. ...The book is suitable for the last year of an undergraduate course or the first year of a postgraduate course. As its parent, this book can be expected to become a classic. (Zentralblatt)
