# On the Algebra of *L*-Matrices

Chapter

## Abstract

There is a singular appropriateness in discussing the algebra of *L*-matrices in this symposium in which Professor R. H. Good is one of principal participants. For it was a seminar conducted almost twelve years ago, in Madras, on an interesting paper of Professor Good on the gamma matrices which started an investigation that culminated in the present theory of *L*-matrices which include the gamma matrices within their structure.
