**Abstract**:
We show that Clifford algebras are closely related to the study
of isoclinic subspaces of spinor spaces and, consequently, to
the Hurwitz-Radon matrix problem. Isocliny angles are introduced
to parametrize gamma matrices, i.e., matrix representations of
the generators of finite-dimensional Clifford algebras *C(m,n)*.
Restricting the consideration to the Clifford algebra *C(4,0)*,
this parametrization is then applied to the study of Dirac traces
occurring in Euclidean lattice quantum field theory within the
hopping parameter expansion for Wilson fermions.
