Math facts

  • Two types of results
    • Periodicity of the homotopy groups of the unitary groups.
    • Periodic theorem of vector bundles.
  • Two-cycle
    • Start from C - as the basic duality - and end up at C inverted (perhaps the conjugate) and go back. This circle is used to list the quotients of Clifford modules {$GL_{n}(\mathbb{R})/GL_{n}(\mathbb{C})$} check? etc If you multiply all the quotients together than you get the identity (?)

{$\begin{pmatrix} & & \mathbb{C}_{n} & & \\ & \mathbb{H}_{n} & & \mathbb{R}_{n} & \\ \mathbb{H}_{n} \times \mathbb{H}_{n} & & & & \mathbb{R}_{n} \times \mathbb{R}_{n} \\ & \mathbb{H}_{n} & & \mathbb{R}_{n} & \\ & & \mathbb{C}_{n} & & \end{pmatrix}$}

  • Eight-cycle
    • The fourfold periodicity within the Bott periodicity is a repeating pattern (0,1,1,0 ?)
    • W: Symmetric group Note that the reverse on n elements and perfect shuffle on 2n elements have the same sign; these are important to the classification of Clifford algebras, which are 8-periodic.
    • This pattern is based on the sign of the pseudovector.
    • This pattern expresses whether the sum of 1+...+n is even or odd. Even + even = even; + odd = odd; + even = odd; + odd = even; and so on. This pattern is likewise the sum of the numbers mod 2. Thus 0+0=0; +1=1; +0=1;+1=0.
    • This pattern also comes up in multiplying by i. We get 1, i, -1, -i - two positives followed by two negatives.
    • A similar pattern comes up in the volumes of n-spheres. The volume of an n-sphere is {$\frac{\pi^{\frac{n}{2}}}{\Gamma(\frac{n}{2}+1)}$} where {$\Gamma(n+\frac{1}{2})=(n-\frac{1}{2})(n-\frac{3}{2})\cdots \frac{1}{2}\cdot\pi^{\frac{1}{2}}$}. Thus we have: {$\frac{2n}{2}=n, \frac{2n+1}{2}-\frac{1}{2}=n, \frac{2n+2}{2}=n+1, \frac{2n+3}{2}-\frac{1}{2}=n+1$}, and so on.
    • The pattern also comes up by two recurrences for volume and hyperarea (surface area) in terms of each other. Starting with {$V_0(R)=1, A_0(R)=2$} and continuing {$V_{n+1}(R)=\frac{R}{n+1}A_{n}(R), A_{n+1}(R)=(2\pi R) V_{n}$} we get the pattern for the factor {$\pi$}.

Real numbers = slack, Complex numbers = null, Quaternions = perspective

Clifford algebra periodicity

  • Readings
  • The Wikipedia article explains that in the complex case the quadratic form there is no signature because {$+1 = i^2(–1)$}. Whereas in the real case the signature distinguishes between the number of {$+1$} and the number of {$–1$}.
  • The pseudoscalar (the product of all the basis elements) is important because it is similar to the scalar. When the dimension is odd, then the pseudoscalar commutes with everything, and so it is in the center. When the dimension is even, then the pseudoscalar does not commute with everything and so the center only consists of the identity.
  • In the real case, what characterizes the Clifford algebra of signature {$(p,q)$} is the number {$p-q \text{mod} 8$}.
  • There are the progressions, adding basis elements which square to {$-1$}, but likewise in the {$+1$} direction:
    • Complexification:

{$$R, C, H$$}

  • Growing:

{$$R, R \bigoplus R, \begin{pmatrix} R & R \\ R & R \end{pmatrix} $$}

  • Untangling:

{$$ H, \begin{pmatrix} C & C \\ C & C \end{pmatrix}, \begin{pmatrix} R & R & R & R \\ R & R & R & R \\ R & R & R & R \\ R & R & R & R \end{pmatrix} $$}

  • Wedderburn's theorem states that The Artin-Wedderburn theorem generalizes this result to Artinian rings.
  • Frobenius's theorem for real division algebras states that every finite-dimensional associative division algebra over the real numbers is isomorphic to the real numbers, the complex numbers or the quaternions.
  • Hurwitz's theorem: The only real normed division algebras are R, C, H, and the (non-associative) algebra O.
  • A division algebra is an algebra over a field in which division, except by zero, is always possible.
  • C0 R
  • C1 C
  • C2 H
  • C3 H + H
  • C4 H(2)
  • C5 C(4)
  • C6 R(8)
  • C7 R(8) + R(8)
  • C8 R(16)

{$C_{n+8}$} consists of 16 x 16 matrices with entries in {$C_n$}.

  • The positive and negative directions (for the signature) are related as {$R$} and {$M_8(R)$}.
  • For any n=s+t (exploring how we generate the perspectives in a division of everything into n perspectives, going from 0 to n in n steps) there are two patterns:
    • even n, {$X=2^{\frac{N}{2}}$}: {$\dots R(2X), R(2X), H(X), H(X), R(2X), R(2X), H(X), H(X) \dots$}
    • odd n, {$X=2^{\frac{N-1}{2}}$}: {$\dots H(X)\bigoplus H(X), C(2X), R(2X)\bigoplus R(2X), C(2X), H(X)\bigoplus H(X), C(2X), R(2X)\bigoplus R(2X) \dots$}
  • Combined, these two patterns yield for n, along the edge:
    • {$\dots R(2^N), C(2^N), H(2^N), H(2^N) \bigoplus H(2^N), H(2^{N+1}), C(2^{N+2}), R(2^{N+3}), R(2^{N+3})\bigoplus R(2^{N+3}) \dots$}

Generalized Clifford Algebra has clock-shift operators.

  • Some matrices describe the 8-cycle clock (the trolley stops).
  • Generalized Pauli matrices describe the 3 shifts (the trolley cars of different increments +1, +2, +3). See the "clock and shift matrices".

Complex structures

  • We call {$J$} a complex structure on {$R^n$} if {$J\in O(n)$} and {$J^2=−I_n$}. Denote the space of complex structures {$Ω_1(n)⊂O(n)$}.
  • Define {$Ω_k(n)$} to be the space of complex structures that anti-commute with fixed {$J_1,\dots ,J_{k-1}$}.
  • {$Ω_0 \cong Ω_8$}
  • Consider how complex structures relate to divisions of everything. Apparently, each {$J_i$} is a perspective. Anti-commutativity {$J_iJ_j = -J_jJ_i$} means that the composition of perspectives is inverted if the order is switched. So the matrix {$-I$} can be interpreted as an inversion of perspective, and thus, of chains of perspectives. A set of eight perspectives brings us back to no perspectives, which is to say, the default perspective at the origin.

Ideas

  • The two-cycle is: the undefined (the nullsome) yields the defined (the foursome), which yields the defined undefined (the eightsome), which is the same as the undefined (the nullsome).
  • The eight-cycle arises from the details: adding four perspectives yields the foursome, the defined. Then we can, dually, think of subtracting perspectives from that. But the subtraction (relaxing, removing perspectives) is defined by adding perspectives, yielding the fivesome which lets a sensor be free in time and space, the sixsome lets the conditional sensor relate to the unconditional, the sevensome lets the external unity (of the whole) match the internal unity (of slack) in a dualistic way, the eightsome has the system collapse.
  • The relevant Lie groups are all rotations about a fixed origin. That fixed origin represents a universal, absolute perspective, God's perspective upon everything, God's knowledge of everything.
  • Divisions of everything are perhaps chopping up a sphere where the sphere is everything also circle folding
  • Bott periodicity should be related to the collapse of the eightsome into the nullsome, and thus the definition of contradiction
  • Complex case: 2-periodicity - divisions having 4 (nežinojimas) or 2 (žinojimas) representations. Real case: 8-peridocity.
  • Perspective arises because of base point - there is a fixed point for the isometries. We are that fixed point.
  • Understand the dimensions of a Lie group as perspectives. And look at Lie groups as rotations of a sphere.

John Baez about Clifford algebra periodicity

Notes

Bott Periodicity

  • John Baez's comment about 4 dimensions being most interesting because half-way between 0 and 8. The Son turns around and reverses the Father.
  • How can the fact that {$\Gamma(\frac{1}{2})=\sqrt{\pi}$} relate {$\pi$} and {$e$}? Note that {$\Gamma(1)=0!$} and {$\Gamma(\frac{3}{2})=\frac{\sqrt{\pi}}{2}$}. Consider the integral definition.
  • In Bott periodicity, the going beyond oneself (by adding perspectives) and the going outside of oneself (by subtracting perspectives) is, in mathematics, extended to all possible integers, and thus the two directions are related in the four ways as given by the four classical Lie algebras, including gluing, fusing, folding.
  • In the eight-cycle of divisions, the going beyond oneself and the going back outside oneself are reminiscent of spinors like electrons.
  • The flip side of going beyond yourself - if you can add perspectives, then you can substract perspectives - on the flip side. Thus nullsome and foursome model the extremes: nullsome models the void of everything, foursome models the point of nothing. Thus adding a perspective takes us from the indefinite to the definite and back again. The three operations +1,+2,+3 make for a three-fold braid.
  • R nullsome
  • H twosome 1+i (different) j+ij (the same)
  • H+H threesome splits the twosome
  • (H2) foursome - internally doubles
  • (C4) fivesome
  • (R8) sixsome
  • R+R sevensome (dividing the nullsome into two perspectives)

(S16) what would S mean? half of R? positive reals?
