About the Author

Waldyr Alves Rodrigues Jr, full professor of Mathematical Physics, at the State University of Campinas, São Paulo,
Brazil, received his BSc from the University of São Paulo, and his PhD from the University of Torino, Italy. He has held various positions at Brazilian and European universities, one of them being director of the Institute of Mathematics, Statistics and Scientific Computation, State
University of Campinas (IMECC-UNICAMP) from 1994 to1998. He has more than 40
years of teaching experience in more than 70 courses at graduate and post-graduate levels. As a researcher he received many grants, and various prizes - especially in 2012 he won the Paul Sabatier honor medal in 2012 for his contributions to applications of Clifford algebras to mathematical physics.
He is the editor-in-chief of the journal “Advances in Applied Clifford Algebras”.

Edmundo Capelas de
Oliveira is a member of the
Mathematical Physics Group at the State
University of Campinas, Sao Paulo, Brazil. He received his
PhD in Physics in 1982, and became a full professor in Applied Mathematics in 2015.
His research topics involve projective relativity, differential equations, complex analysis and fractional calculus. He is author of several successful textbooks (in Portuguese), teaches undergraduate as well as graduate courses, and held positions as Library
Coordinator, Graduate Studies Coordinator of the Department and Associate
Director of the Institute.
