Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 94)


This is a brief review of (i) Carmeli's method of formulation and quantization of fields in terms of functions over the group SU(2); (ii) Work by Barut, Carmeli and the present author on applications of the method to Maxwell's equations, Weyl's equation, Dirac's equation and the linearized equations of General Relativity.
