Paper Abstract

Complementary idempotent paravectors and their ordered compositions, are used to represent multivector basis elements of geometric Clifford algebra G3,0 as the states of a geometric byte in a given frame of reference. Two layers of information, available in real numbers, are distinguished. The first layer is a continuous one. It is used to identify spatial orientations of similar geometric objects in the same computational basis. The second layer is a binary one. It is used to manipulate with 8D structure elements inside the computational basis itself. An oriented unit cube representation, rather than a matrix one, is used to visualize an inner structure of basis multivectors. Both layers of information are used to describe unitary operations - reflections and rotations - in Euclidian and Hilbert spaces. The results are compared with ones for quantum gates. Some consequences for quantum and classical information technologies are discussed.
