Abstract

In this chapter we develop the relation between the relativistic wave equations for free fields and the representation theory of the Poincare group P. We then give a brief discussion of the description of invariance or covariance in the formalism ofquantum theory thereafter turning to a systematic theory of unitary irreducible representations of P.
