  • The CPT theorem (G. Luders, Kgl. Danske Videnskab. Selskab Mat.-fys. Medd., 28: No. 5(1954)) and the normal connection between spin and statistics are consequences of postulates of the S-matrix approach to elementary particle physics. These are weaker than those of field theory. Neither local fields nor any reference to space-time points are used. Quantum commutation relations and properties of the vacuum play no role. Completeness of the asymptotic states and positive definiteness or the… CONTINUE READING
