We present a consistent approach to finding discrete transformations in representation spaces of the proper Poincaré group. To this end we establish a correspondence between involutory automorphisms of the group and the discrete transformations. Such a correspondence allows us to describe the action of discrete transformations on arbitrary spin-tensor fields without any use of relativistic wave equations. Extending the proper Poincaré group by the discrete transformations, we construct…

In this paper, starting from a pure group-theoretic point of view, we develop an approach to describing particles with different spins in the framework of a theory of scalar fields on the Poincaré

CP as a Symmetry of Symmetries

It is explained that the Standard Model combined charge conjugation and parity transformation (CP) is a simultaneous complex conjugation outer automorphism transformation of gauge and space-time

CPT Groups of Higher Spin Fields

CPT groups of higher spin fields are defined in the framework of automorphism groups of Clifford algebras associated with the complex representations of the proper orthochronous Lorentz group. Higher
