Peter O’Donnell is Affiliated Lecturer of the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics at the University of Cambridge.
He is auhor of two books: ntroduction to 2-Spinors in General Relativity, World Scientific, 2003; Essential Dynamics & Relativity, CRC Press, 2014.
His current research interests are: Lanczos potential theory. The Weyl tensor can be generated differentially by a three index tensor: the Lanczos tensor, which was derived from a Lagrangian that was initially constructed to analyse the self-dual part of the Riemann tensor. An ongoing study is being carried out to investigate the mathematical and physical properties of the Lanczos tensor. In generating the Weyl tensor the Lanczos tensor acts as a potential – analogous to the electric tensor in electromagnetic theory.
