Abstract(s)We explain how Penrose's spinor calculus of 4-dimensional Lorentzian geometry is implemented in a 5-dimensional Lorentzian manifold. A number of issues, such as the essential spin algebra, the spin covariant derivative and the algebro-differential properties of the curvature spinors are discussed .
