Clifford Space as a Generalization of Spacetime: Prospects for QFT of Point Particles and Strings [Book Review]

Foundations of Physics 35 (9):1617-1642 (2005)

Abstract
The idea that spacetime has to be replaced by Clifford space (C-space) is explored. Quantum field theory (QFT) and string theory are generalized to C-space. It is shown how one can solve the cosmological constant problem and formulate string theory without central terms in the Virasoro algebra by exploiting the peculiar pseudo-Euclidean signature of C-space and the Jackiw definition of the vacuum state. As an introduction into the subject, a toy model of the harmonic oscillator in pseudo-Euclidean space is studied
