Spinor - Wikipedia
In geometry and physics, spinors are elements of a (complex) vector space that
can be associated with Euclidean space. Like geometric vectors and more ... More »
a quantity resembling a vector or tensor that is used in physics to represent the spins of fermions.
In differential geometry, given a spin structure on a n-dimensional Riemannian
manifold (M, g) a section of the spinor bundle S is called a spinor field.
