This book reflects the growing interest in the theory of Clifford algebras and their applications. The author has reworked his previous book on this subject, Topological Geometry, and has expanded and added material. As in the previous version, the author includes an exhaustive treatment of all the generalizations of the classical groups, as well as an excellent exposition of the classification of the conjugation anti-involution of the Clifford algebras and their complexifications. Toward the end of the book, the author introduces ideas from the theory of Lie groups and Lie algebras. This treatment of Clifford algebras will be welcomed by graduate students and researchers in algebra.
