From the modern viewpoint and by the geometric method, this paper provides a concise foundation for the quantum theory of massless spin-3/2 field in Minkowski spacetime, which includes both the one-particle's quantum mechanics and the many-particle's quantum field theory. The explicit result presented here is useful for the investigation of spin-3/2 field in various circumstances such as supergravity, twistor programme, Casimir effect, and quantum inequality.

Casimir Effect for a Massless Spin-3/2 Field in Minkowski Spacetime

The Casimir effect has been studied for various quantum fields in both flat and curved spacetimes. As a further step along this line, we provide an explicit derivation of Casimir effect for massless

Quantum inequalities for a massless spin- 3 / 2 field in Minkowski spacetime

Quantum inequalities have been established for various quantum fields in both flat and curved spacetimes. In particular, for spin-3/2 fields, Yu and Wu have explicitly derived quantum inequalities

Quantum theory of spin-3/2 field in Einstein spaces

A quantum theory of a free massless spin-3/2 field on Einstein spaces (Rab=Λgab) is formulated in an algebraic framework. Attention is confined to the structure of the quantum operator algebra. In

A zero rest-mass field of arbitrary spin s determines, at each event in space-time, a set of 2s principal null directions which are related to the radiative behaviour of the field. These directions

It is perhaps the most fundamental principle of Quantum Mechanics that the system of states forms a linear manifold,1 in which a unitary scalar product is defined.2 The states are generally

Note on Energy-Momentum Tensor for General Mixed Tensor-Spinor Fields

This note provides an explicit proof of the equivalence of Belinfante's energy-momentum tensor and metric energy-momentum tensor for general mixed tensor-spinor fields.
