An exposition which provides a solid theoretical foundation as opposed to others devoted primarily to applications. A complete resolution of two-sided and minimal ideals of the Dirac and Kemmer algebras; a unified approach to the Rotation and Lorentz groups; classification of compact simple Lie algebras and Dynkin diagrams are among the topics covered.
