On pauli’s transformation

  • J. M. Jauch


It is shown that Pauli’s transformation which mixes particle with antiparticle states is canonical but not unitary. It leads from one representation of the field operators to a new inequivalent one.


Si mostra che la trasformazione di Pauli che mescola stati di particella con stati di antiparticella è canonica ma non unitaria. Essa porta da una rappresentazione degli operatori di campo ad un’altra non equivalente.
