Paper Abstract

A new kind of eight dimensional (8D) basis is suggested to describe geometric objects and processes in three dimensional (3D) vector space. In contrast to an ordinary 8D multivector basis for a corresponding geometric Clifford algebra G3.0, it is built from three kinds of complementary idempotent paravectors, defined through three basis vectors of Cartesian frame of reference. The new basis is extremely useful to describe all kinds of objects in G3.0 homogeneously, using only real numbers. It is especially suitable to describe and simulate interference phenomena for rotating vectors, bivectors, paravectors, spinors and other kinds of spatially anisotropic information carriers on traditional computers.
