# An infinite supermultiplet of massive higher-spin fields

@article{Bekaert2009AnIS, title={An infinite supermultiplet of massive higher-spin fields}, author={X. Bekaert and M. R. D. Traubenberg and M. Valenzuela}, journal={Journal of High Energy Physics}, year={2009}, volume={2009}, pages={118-118} }

The representation theory underlying the inflnite-component relativistic wave equation written by Majorana is revisited from a modern perspective. On the one hand, the massless solutions of this equation are shown to form a supermultiplet of the superPoincare algebra with tensorial central charges; it can also be obtained as the inflnite spin limit of massive solutions. On the other hand, the Majorana equation is generalized for any space-time dimension and for arbitrary Regge trajectories… Expand
