Spin projection operators which constitute a resolution of the identity in the space of second rank tensor wave functions are constructed. These projectors are then used to establish Lagrangian quantum field theories for free massive particles with spin-1 (two equivalent formulations) and spin-2.

The Standard model and its Lagrangian form a vast topic. I will attempt to give relevant and accurate information about it. The story of the Standard Model started in the 1960s with the elaboration of the theory of quarks and leptons, and contin.
CiteSeerX - Document Details (Isaac Councill, Lee Giles, Pradeep Teregowda): Lagrangian of a massive particle with spin 3 2 is considered in the Rarita-Schwinger formalism. We discuss implications of the contact- and the gauge-transformation on the physical content of free and interacting theories. It is shown that the “contact-invariance” is trivial and has no physical relevance.
We present a Lagrangian describing a massive charged spin-2 field and a scalar in a constant electromagnetic background, and we provide a consistent description of the system. The.
These notes comprise a part of the introductory lectures on Higher Spin Theory presented in the Eighth Modave Summer School in Mathematical Physics. We construct free higher-spin theories and turn on interactions to find that inconsistencies show up in general. Interacting massless fields in flat space are in tension with gauge invariance and this leads to various no-go theorems. While massive.
The kinematical formalism for describing spinning particles developped by the author is based upon the idea that an elementary particle is a physical system with no excited states. It can be annihilated by the interaction with its antiparticle but, if not destroyed, its internal structure can never be modified. All possible states of the particle are just kinematical modifications of any one.
Title: General Lagrangian Formulation for Higher Spin Fields with Arbitrary Index Symmetry. 2. Fermionic fields. Authors: Alexander A. Reshetnyak (Submitted on 6 Nov 2012 (this version), latest version 8 Oct 2018 ) Abstract: We continue the construction of a Lagrangian description of irreducible half-integer higher-spin representations of the Poincare group with an arbitrary Young tableaux.
Title: General Lagrangian Formulation for Higher Spin Fields with Arbitrary Index Symmetry. 2. Fermionic fields.
Various candidates for the position and spin operators of an electron acquire clear meaning and interpretation in the Lagrangian model of the Frenkel electron. Our results argue in favor of Pryce’s (d)-type operators as the spin and position operators of Dirac theory. This implies that the effects of non-commutativity could be expected already at the Compton wavelength. We also present the.

Lagrangian mechanics is a reformulation of classical mechanics, introduced by the Italian-French mathematician and astronomer Joseph-Louis Lagrange in 1788. In Lagrangian mechanics, the trajectory of a system of particles is derived by solving the Lagrange equations in one of two forms: either the Lagrange equations of the first kind, which treat constraints explicitly as extra equations.
The scheme is Lagrangian and Hamiltonian mechanics. Its original prescription rested on two principles. First that we should try to express the state of the mechanical system using the minimum representa-tion possible and which re ects the fact that the physics of the problem is coordinate-invariant. Second, a mechanical system tries to optimize its action from one split second to the next.
The Lagrangian formulation, on the other hand, just uses scalars, and so coordinate transformations tend to be much easier (which, as I said, is pretty much the whole point). Given a Lagrangian,, which is a function of the location in space and the velocity, we define the action: (2).
Title: Least Action, Lagrangian 1 Least Action, Lagrangian Hamiltonian Mechanics. A very brief introduction to some very powerful ideas; foolproof way to find the equations of motion for complicated dynamical systems; equivalent to Newtons equations; provides a framework for relating conservation laws to symmetries; the ideas may be extended to most areas of fundamental physics (special.
There’s no such thing as a Hamiltonian associated with spin. Spin is a quality of a particle; whereas, a Hamiltonian describes interactions within a system. There are Hamiltonians that involve the spin of a particle and how it interacts with its s.
