We give a detailed analysis of an abelianized gauge field model in which a Rarita-Schwinger spin-$\frac{3}{2}$ field is directly coupled to a spin-$\frac{1}{2}$ field. The model permits a perturbative expansion in powers of the gauge field coupling, and from the Feynman rules for the model we calculate the chiral anomaly.

In earlier work we introduced an abelianized gauge field model in which a Rarita-Schwinger field is directly coupled to a spin-12 field, and showed that this model admits a perturbative expansion in

Analysis of an SU(8) model with a spin-1 2 field directly coupled to a gauged Rarita–Schwinger spin-3 2 field

In earlier work we analyzed an abelianized model in which a gauged Rarita-Schwinger spin-$\frac{3}{2}$ field is directly coupled to a spin-$\frac{1}{2}$ field. Here we extend this analysis to the

Chiral anomaly calculation in the extended coupled Rarita-Schwinger model

We recalculate the chiral anomaly in the Abelian gauge model in which a spin-$\frac{1}{2}$ field is directly coupled to a Rarita-Schwinger spin-$\frac{3}{2}$ field, using the extended theory in which

Gravitational chiral anomaly for spin 3/2 field interacting with spin 1/2 field

The gravitational chiral quantum anomaly is calculated in the framework of the extended Rarita-Schwinger-Adler (RSA) field theory, which includes the interaction with an additional spin 1/2 field. It

Chiral vortical effect in extended Rarita-Schwinger field theory and chiral anomaly

We consider the theory of Rarita-Schwinger field interacting with a field with spin 1/2, in the case of finite temperature, chemical potential and vorticity, and calculate the chiral vortical effect

Hydrodynamic manifestation of gravitational chiral anomaly

Gravitational chiral anomaly induces the universal transport phenomenon (Kinematical Vortical Effect) dependent solely on medium vorticity and acceleration but (explicitly) independent on its

Quantized Gauged Massless Rarita-Schwinger Fields

We study quantization of a minimally gauged massless Rarita-Schwinger field, by both Dirac bracket and functional integral methods. The Dirac bracket approach in covariant radiation gauge leads to an

Classical Gauged Massless Rarita-Schwinger Fields

We show that, in contrast to known results in the massive case, a minimally gauged massless Rarita-Schwinger field yields a consistent classical theory, with a generalized fermionic gauge invariance

Canonical Field Anticommutators in the Extended Gauged Rarita-Schwinger Theory

We reexamine canonical quantization of the gauged Rarita-Schwinger theory using the extended theory, incorporating a dimension $\frac{1}{2}$ auxiliary spin-$\frac{1}{2}$ field $\Lambda$, in which

Working within the framework of perturbation theory, we show that the axial-vector vertex in spinor electrodynamics has anomalous properties which disagree with those found by the formal manipulation

The Rarita-Schwinger equation in an external electromagnetic potential is shown to be equivalent to a hyperbolic system of partial differential equations supplemented by initial conditions. The wave
