2 Description of Spinor Fields in the Clifford Bundle

  title={2 Description of Spinor Fields in the Clifford Bundle},
  author={E. Capelas De Oliveira and Waldyr Alves Jr. Rodrigues and J. Jr. Vaz},
In this paper we recall that by construction Elko spinor fields of λ and ρ types satisfy a coupled system of first order partial differential equations (csfopde) that once interacted leads to Klein-Gordon equations for the λ and ρ type fields. Since the csfopde is the basic one and since the KleinGordon equations for λ and ρ possess solutions that are not solutions of the csfopde for λ and ρ we infer that it is legitimate to attribute to those fields mass dimension 3/2 (as is the case of Dirac… 


Algebraic and Dirac–Hestenes spinors and spinor fields
The present paper clarifies some misunderstandings appearing on the literature of Dirac spinor fields and exhibits a truly useful collection of results concerning the theory of Clifford algebras (including many tricks of the trade) necessary for the intelligibility of the text.
ELKO, Flagpole and Flag-Dipole Spinor Fields, and the Instanton Hopf Fibration
Abstract.In a previous paper we explicitly constructed a mapping that leads Dirac spinor fields to the dual-helicity eigenspinors of the charge conjugation operator (ELKO spinor fields). ELKO spinor
The bundles of algebraic and Dirac–Hestenes spinor fields
Our main objective in this paper is to clarify the ontology of Dirac–Hestenes spinor fields (DHSF) and its relationship with even multivector fields, on a Riemann–Cartan spacetime (RCST)
From Dirac spinor fields to ELKO
Dual-helicity eigenspinors of the charge conjugation operator (ELKO spinor fields) belong, together with Majorana spinor fields, to a wider class of spinor fields, the so-called flagpole spinor
The relation between Maxwell, Dirac, and the Seiberg-Witten equations
We discuss unsuspected relations between Maxwell, Dirac, and the Seiberg-Witten equations. First, we present the Maxwell-Dirac equivalence (MDE) of the first kind. Crucial to that proposed
Where are ELKO spinor fields in Lounesto spinor field classification
This paper proves that from the algebraic point of view ELKO spinor fields belong together with Majorana spinor fields to a wider class, the so-called flagpole spinor fields, corresponding to the
From Dirac Action to ELKO Action
A fundamental action, representing a mass dimension-transmuting operator between Dirac and ELKO spinor fields, is performed on the Dirac Lagrangian, in order to lead it into the ELKO Lagrangian. Such

How to construct self/anti-self charge conjugate states for higher spins
We construct self/anti-self charge conjugate (Majorana-like) states for the (1/2,0)⊕(0,1/2) representation of the Lorentz group, and their analogs for higher spins within the quantum field theory.
Wave equation for a magnetic monopole
AbstractWe show that there is room, in the Dirac equation, for a massless monopole. The basic idea is that the Dirac equation admits a second electromagnetic minimal coupling associated to the chiral
