Abstract : During the past three years the author and his collaborators have made a systematic study of matrices A and B which satisfy the Clifford conditions A sup 2 = B sup 2 = I AB = BA. It was demonstrated that there is a 'shell structure' in the anticommuting matrices and a consequent telescoping of eigenvalues of an Lmatrix which is a linear combination of anticommuting matrices. It is now observed that the form of the weak interaction Hamiltonian in elementary particle physics is an interesting manifestation of the shell structure. (Author)
