Abstract

We demonstrate that the existence of an algebraic spin structure (a globally defined primitive idempotent in the Clifford bundle of a manifold) is sufficient to describe algebraic spinors globally even when the manifold is not endowed with a spinor structure. The modified Kähler equation can then be used to provide a global dynamical framework for such spinors.
