    The entry Clifford algebra used to state the classification and Bott periodicty over the complex numbers, but not over the real numbers. I have added in now the relevant statements, straight from Lawson-Michelson:

    Just the bare statements so far.

    added some more publication data to the references, added pointer to one more brief introduction, and reorganized the items slightly

    added (here) the statement and its proof (i.e. the elementary computation) of the Clifford representation of the orthognal Lie algebras

    have added these two pointers:

    Will also add these to standard model of particle physics.

  1. In quaternions i, j, and k square to -1. Therefore it should be Cl 3,0Cl_{3,0} \simeq \mathbb{H}, instead of Cl 2,0Cl_{2,0} \simeq \mathbb{H}, right?

    Isn’t it that from the two basis elements of (2,0)\mathbb{R}^{(2,0)}, e 1e_1 and e 2e_2 squaring to 1-1, the Clifford algebra is generated by {1,e 1,e 2,e 1e 2}\{1, e_1, e_2, e_1 e_2\}, the latter three generators squaring to 1-1?

    Yes. Ideally the entry would explain how the identification works. (Myself, i have no time right now, maybe later…)
