# A new class of mass dimension one fermions

@article{Ahluwalia2020ANC, title={A new class of mass dimension one fermions}, author={Dharam Vir Ahluwalia}, journal={arXiv: General Physics}, year={2020} }

These are notes on the square root of $4\times4$ identity matrix and associated quantum fields of spin one half. The method is illustrated by constructing a new mass dimension one fermionic field. The presented field is local. The field energy is bounded from below. It is argued that these fermions are a first-principle candidate for dark matter with an unsuppressed quartic self interaction.
