Title: The geometry of spinors in Minkowski space
Abstract: Work of Penrose and Rindler in the 1908s developed a formalism for spinors in relativity theory. In their work they gave geometric interpretations of 2-component spinors in terms of Minkowski space. We present some extensions of this work, involving 3-dimensional hyperbolic geometry.
