Peter Jarvis: Diagram algebras and representations

In mathematics, particularly in the theory of spinors, the Weyl–Brauer matrices are an explicit realization of a Clifford algebra as a matrix algebra of 2⌊n/2⌋ × 2⌊n/2⌋ matrices. They generalize to n dimensions the Pauli matrices which relate to 3-dimensional Euclidean space. They are named for Richard Brauer and Hermann Weyl, and were one of the earliest systematic constructions of spinors from a representation theoretic standpoint.
