### Single-valueness of spinor components

I am confused about the non-single-valueness of spinor components. For instance, consider the Killing spinor $\psi$ on standard unit $S^3$:
\begin{equation}
{\nabla _m}\psi = - ...

### Cotetrad, spin connection and Dirac operator

Let us consider an orientable smooth 4-manifold $M$. Pick a vector bundle $T$ that's isomorphic to the tangent bundle $TM$. We then equip $T$ with a cotetrad (or coframe field) $e$ and (spin) ...
