Clifford Algebra - Geometric Calculus

Tim Sweeney sent along the following bit which you may find useful and/or interesting:

" I've been reading up on Clifford Algebra (heard about it from a link on your site), and it's REALLY cool. While I haven't done significant programming with it yet, the symbology of common vector and matrix algebra operations with Clifford Algebra is a lot nicer than with matrices. I think this is definitely valuable to hardcore 3D programmers.

Two really good books I've found on the topic are:

Though, the books are fairly hardcore...one probably needs to have studied mathematics up to vector calculus to really make sense of the terminology. "
