Majorana and Weyl spinors in arbitrary dimensions

Abstract:

We review some basic properties of Clifford algebra and calculate the dimension of spinor representation in arbitrary dimension. By giving the overview of Majorana and Weyl conditions in arbitrary dimension with Minkowski metric we conclude in which dimension it is possible to have both Majorana and Weyls spinors. It will be shown how this can be extended to arbitrary signature.
